I decided to give the Egg the night off. I had a craving for fried shrimp and I just had to satisfy it.

Used my propane burner and got my oil heated up to 350F.

Used some Zatarian's Seasoned Shrimp Fri and battered up some 'shrooms for an appetizer

Turned out sooo good!!

Then I used some Louisiana Hushpuppy mix, added in a diced jalapeno and fried those up as well.

Not so good, kind of bland and dry, but they looked great. Next up it was the shrimp

Finally plated it up with some Bombay Salad (from a restaurant called King's Inn in Baffin Bay, Texas) that my wife loves and whipped up.

Felt bad for my Egg, but I had a craving. And I got plans to fire her up tonight, so she's not too mad at me....I hope.

Ain't nothin' wrong with taking the night off to fry something up every once in awhile! Looks excellent! Now you got me craving fried shrimp and hush puppies! :P

Thank you, Sir. It was a craving that wouldn't go away and I could no longer fight. But it was done outside....over propane. Good thing is it didn't stink up the house. :wink:

That meal looks excellent Griffin! Nothing wrong with scratching that itch. And like you said you did it outdoors.

Mushrooms and shrimp are 2 of my most favorite fried foods ever, and those look great!

Never feel bad for wanting to fry something. You're only human. :)
