I hope you all are doing good. Firstly, I would like to apologize for being away for so long. As some of you might already know that my sister had visited us in July, and then i was in India for my brother in laws wedding. I was busy shopping, getting pampered, organizing the functions, meeting friends and family and enjoying my vacation to the core. Hence cooking was off the list. Now that i am back, i shall keep posting like before. And Yes.. I still have to catch up with all your posts and i will be doing that soon.
So today I will be sharing with you all this popular Japanese dish called Ebi Fry (Panko Crumbed Shrimp). This one is for my brother in law who loves Seafood. This is an extremely simple recipe with very few ingredients.
To make this dish, Shrimp is first coated with some flour, then dipped in an egg wash and finally coated with these Panko bread crumbs and deep fried. These airy bread crumbs absorb less oil and give more crunch and texture to the final product. I thus love these Panko bread crumbs and its easily available now in most stores. It is an excellent starter and you can also use them as a topping for sushi, sandwiches or rolls.
