Pour the Buttermilk (1 cup) and juice from Lemon (1) over the Shrimp (8 oz) and set aside for 30 minutes to marinate.

step 4
Heat 2 cups of Canola Oil (as needed) in a fryer or heavy-bottomed pan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Strain the shrimp and then dredge the shrimp in the cornstarch mixture.
