A request was made. She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted breaded shrimp. I prefer unbreaded shrimp that is marinated and grilled but who am I to deny a beautiful woman who has made me happy for decades?

I had about 30 medium shrimp that were shelled and deveined but the tails left on. I patted them dry with a paper towel.

I preheated my Traeger Timberline to 425 F (220 C).

I set up a breading station. First, I mixed 75 ml (1/3 cup) flour with 5 ml (1 tsp) dried dill weed, 3 ml (1/2 teaspoon) each salt and pepper.

Next, I mixed 1 egg, 125 ml (1/2 cup) milk, and 5 ml (1 tsp) Sriracha sauce.

Lastly, I mixed 250 ml (1 cup) panko bread crumbs, and 10 ml (2 tsp) dried dill.

I dipped the prawns in the flour with my right hand. I put them in the egg mixture with my left hand. Then I put them on the breadcrums with my left hand and shoveled bread crumbs over them with my dry right hand.

I put the prawns on a rack and sprayed them with baking spray.

I put them in the smoker for 4 minutes and turned the prawns. I continued to cook until they got golden, about 4 minutes more.

I served these with a commercial seafood sauce.

The Verdict

She Who Must Be Obeyed was pleased. The shrimp had a nice crunchy coating. The touch of the heat from the sriracha was nice and the dill added a nice complexity.

I will say again that I prefer marinated and grilled prawns but I did enjoy these.

Those shrimp look to be excellent from where I'm sitting Disco, Like! We eat a lot of shrimp, usually breaded and fried in olive oil and butter and quite often these days using a CI tray with the Weber kettle. I make a ketchup based cocktail sauce for shrimp, change up the flavor a bit now and then. RAY

However seeing yours, I think I gotta try some Breaded again, for a change!!

True words, Jim! Thanks!

Looks great Disco
Mona would love that, as i don't eat any shell fish. Just dont care for the texture . But i cook it all the time for Mona now. She would die for a feed of Halibut cheeks, i must get down to the wharf soon for her birthday is coming up

David

Mona is a wise woman! I am jealous of both of you, David. There is such great seafood there. It is hard to get here in the Rockies.

I won't lie to you Chef. I prefer breaded fried but orders from a higher power make that a no go.

I would prefer to fry these, Ray. However, apparently, that is not allowed.

I'm with you, Bear. I think the shrimp take up more flavour with those methods but I don't mind breaded when She Who Must Be Obeyed wants them.
