Shrimp Corn Dogs

LOVE THIS RECIPE :smiley: :cool:

(for the batter)
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of cornmeal
2 cups all-purpose flour
0.25 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1.5 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 cups whole milk
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk

(for the shrimp)
10-15 large shrimp
Wooden skewers (don’t get them in team colors)
6 cups frying oil (peanut or canola)

(for the honey mustard)
1 cup honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

To get the batter going, whisk all your dry ingredients together, then, using a wooden spoon, mix in the milk and eggs. As batter sits, cornmeal will swell, so add additional milk as needed to thin everything out.

Boring part: Peel, de-vein, and remove the tails from the shrimp. Flatten them on the counter or other flat surface, belly-side down, as best you can. Skewer the shrimp from the fat end and push the skewer toward the tail.

Fun part: Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or other heavy-walled pot to 340 degrees F. Dip the skewered shrimp β€” slowly, very slowly β€” in the batter-turned-fry-oil and let it fester in there for four or five minutes or until golden brown. Repeat, serve with honey mustard.

OH my, sorry, this is also a no in my book. When I eat shrimp, I want the real, true taste of shrimp. Thanks for posting though, interesting to read. Just give me steamed or grilled shrimp & a quick, short dip in shrimp sauce & I’m extremely happy.

Wow! I thought I had heard of Shrimp fixed every way, but I have never heard of Shrimp Corn Dogs. I look forward to trying them!


I have tried shrimp corn dogs first at last week. But it had been baked salty. So my mother became angry on me.

oh well almonds. you are just one opinion. others seem more open minded about this recipe.

thanks kitchen witch.

Pat let me know how it worked for you.

how did you baked the corn dogs pamlstano? a mold? just curious? hopefully next time they are less salty so your mother wont be angry anymore.

yummmm - now to deal with my deep frying phobia

Not the grease, the deep frying! lol

wow these are going on my must make for the 4th on July weekend.

I find that lightly dusting the shrimp with corn starch before dipping in the batter helps the batter stick to the shrimp better.

yea corn starch works great for frying
