Mr. Hawthorne Fries Shrimp.

What a lovely dinner we're having tonight - Mr. Hawthorne's fried shrimp with a lemon sriracha aioli and my squash pie.
The shrimp were expertly fried. Light, crisp breading on the outside, succulent sweet shrimp on the inside. I love the lemon sriracha aioli. It's the perfect accompaniment to fried shrimp - a lemony hot sweet chili pop. The squash pie was summery goodness - squash, sweet peppers, tomatoes, basil. And ooooh ... the cheese.
First, Mr. Hawthorne soaked his peeled and deveined shrimp in buttermilk.
2 parts flour 1 part cornmeal Old Bay seasoning
Fry at 350 degrees about 1 minute.
This is some beautiful shrimp.
There's no cookin' like home cookin'.
