How to Make Crispy Shrimp Poppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Butterfly the shrimp along the outside curves. Spread about 1 teaspoon cream cheese inside each shrimp.
    Cut bacon strips in half lengthwise; wrap a piece around each shrimp and secure with toothpicks.

    In three separate shallow bowls, place the flour, eggs and bread crumbs. Coat the shrimp with flour; dip into eggs, then coat with bread crumbs.

    In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°.

    Fry shrimp, a few at a time, for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Discard toothpicks before serving.

    These babies are delicious!
