    1 pound uncooked jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left intact

    1/3 cup flour

    3/4 teaspoon salt

    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

    3 large eggs

    1 1/2 cups Kikkoman Panko Bread Crumbs

    Vegetable oil (for deep frying)


    1. Beat eggs in a medium bowl until frothy. Mix flour, salt and pepper in another medium bowl. Dredge shrimp in flour, shake off excess. Dip shrimp into eggs, then press shrimp into Panko; turn shrimp over and press into Panko again to coat both sides.
    2. Pour enough oil into heavy large pot to reach depth of 2 inches; heat to 350 degrees F. Working in batches, add shrimp to hot oil; deep-fry until cooked through, about 1 minute. Using tongs transfer shrimp to paper towels to drain. Arrange shrimp on platter. If desired, serve with Kikkoman Tonkatsu Sauce for dipping.

    Hey just FYI you add some corn starch to flour it gives it even more crunch.

    And after breading you refrigerate for half an hour or so, the breading will stay on much better.
