So today I made some fried and breaded shrimp tacos. Now if you’ve been reading my previous posts you know I don’t eat typical bread derived from wheat or potato starch. I avoid that like a three year old avoids most veggies. But I found this awesome breading that is not only friendly for peeps with PS, but it’s also gluten free! That’s a bonus folks! The box I used is this: box

The brand is called Kinnikinnick and I feel like I need six tongues to say their brand name. Either way this stuff is awesome, six tongues or not! Here’s a list of the ingredients: ingredients

It’s pretty straight forward and the best part is there is no MSG, especially since this is a Panko type of mix too! Now to make this it’s very simple.

First you have to buy some shrimp. I recommend Tiger Prawn Shrimp istock_000003770297small-tiger-shrimp

You have to remove the shell and feet prior to cooking them. Next get a small saucepan and fill it with oil. I used this oil: 20170111_201150

This oil is great because not only does it have a high viscosity, but the coconut gives the breading a sweet taste.

I filled the sauce pan with just enough oil to where the shrimps are almost halfway submerged, but not over the top since that causes burning and makes em oily too. I cracked two eggs, and mixed the powder with some sea salt and black cracked pepper. You can add garlic powder too or spicy stuff if that’s your thing. I can’t tell you how much breading to use since I have no idea how many shrimps you’re using! I had about 8 shrimps so I used a cup and a half of the breading mixture with the spices. After beating the egg up in a small bowl, I placed a shrimp in the egg mixture with my fingers, then scooped it out with some thongs into the breading mixture. There, I tossed the breading on both sides and then with the thongs I dropped the shrimp into the oil. I cooked each side for about 3-4 minutes, depending on how brown and crispy I wanted it. I recommend doing no more than 5 minutes or else it’ll be pretty burnt! Then take the shrimps out and dry any excess oil with a paper towel.

Next I got some corn tortillas and tossed them on the burner like this: 17o89pn5iqmonjpg

Okay if you don’t have a gas grill don’t fret, you can always steam or put the tortilla in a saucepan to make it soft. After the tortillas are ready, place them on a plate using thongs or your hands if you’re fire resistant, put whatever toppings you want, I used Tofutti Sour Cream vegansourcreamas a base on the tortilla then placed (using thongs) the shrimps on the tortilla along with lettuce and lime. This is the final result:

It was really crispy and delish! Here’s a list of what you need to help you sort out a grocery shopping list:

  1. Tiger Prawn Shrimp (depending on how many people 6 shrimps to a pound)
  2. A box of Kinnikinnick breading  I don’t recommend getting them from Amazon since it’s too expensive, this is just an example of where you can get it along with the reviews.
  3. 2-6 eggs depending on how many shrimps, 2 eggs is good if it’s 8-12 shrimps
  4. Sea Salt
  5. Black Pepper
  6. Paper Towels
  7. Tortillas
  8. Lettuce
  9. Lime
  10. Coconut or Avocado oil for high viscosity
  11. Whatever else you want
