The gourmet guru is adding his very own "mouth watering magic touch" to our favorite seafood.
Did you know that Thursday, 3/24 is the anniversary of famed magician Harry Houdini's birthday? So in his honor, I thought I'd search around for a magical recipe, and wow! What could be hotter than this?
Here's the trick to it: We coat 1 pound large peeled and de-veined shrimp in a mixture we've made from 1/2 cup flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon ground red pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Then dip them into a mixture of 2 beaten eggs and 2 tablespoons water, and to give them their magical taste we coat them well in 2-1/2 cups sweetened, flaked coconut! Okay, in a large saucepan over medium heat in a couple cups of vegetable oil, we cook the shrimp until they're crisp and golden.
Drain 'em on a paper towel, and like magic, they're done! Well, using any brands we'd like, in no time we've got crispy, crunchy shrimp with a tropical-tasting touch! Serve it up with your favorite go-alongs, and as quick as it is to make 'em, that's how fast they're going to disappear!
If you’d like the recipe, just send a self-addressed, stamped envelope marked "Coconut Shrimp" to me, Mr. Food, right here at the station, or look for it online for a magical recipe in salute of a famous magician and our magical kitchen!
"Ooh it's so good!!®"
