Ebi Fry is an iconic fried dish that's perfect as an appetizer or part of the main meal as well. This Japanese-inspired Fried Shrimp recipe uses panko breadcrumbs instead of the traditional wet batter to stay crispy longer.

Author's Notes

Make sure the shrimp is as dry as possible before deep-frying to prevent oil splatters; especially the tail. Water gets trapped in there easily, so dry it thoroughly with a paper towel.
