Arrange the stations in a row starting with flour, then eggs, then panko. When done, place a clean plate at the end of the shrimp line.
• Use your left hand to press the shrimp into the dough. Transfer it to your right hand and dip it into the egg, then into the panko.Press the panko into the shrimp until evenly coated. Arrange shrimp on a clean plate; Repeat with remaining shrimp. Keeping your hands dry will help reduce stickiness and make the baking process more efficient.
• Pour oil into an iron pan. There should be an inch of oil at the bottom.If you are using a smaller or larger pan, adjust the quantities accordingly. Preheat the oven with oil over high heat. The oil will sizzle if you sprinkle some breadcrumbs on it when the oil is cooked. Don’t add shrimp too early.
• Use tongs to place the shrimp into the pan.Try to keep them from touching each other so the pan isn’t too crowded and the shrimp can cook evenly.
• Shrimp cook for 90 seconds on each side. General
