Butterfly Shrimp

"Butterflied shrimp tossed in breadcrumbs and fried to tender on the inside, crispy crunchy on the outside perfection in under 35 minutes. These crispy butterfly shrimp are coated in panko, breadcrumbs, and Old Bay then pan fried to a crunchy golden brown just begging for a squeeze of lemon and a dip in cocktail sauce! This butterfly shrimp recipe is quite simple and creates a nice presentation. You’ll carefully slice down the center which makes the shrimp thinner to ensure even and quick cooking. This process is normally done on large or jumbo shrimp but can be done on regular-sized shrimp as well. "
