Things To Grab
- Spiral slicer
- Medium bowl
- Paper towel
- Medium skillet
- Peel 1/2 of potato and cut with spiral slicer to make at least eight 1-1/2-foot-long potato strings; reserve unpeeled half for another use. Keep potato strings in a bowl with enough cold water to cover until ready to use.
- Drain potato strings and pat dry with paper towel. Season shrimp to taste with salt and pepper. Wrap each shrimp with a potato string, being careful to keep the string taut, leaving tails exposed.
- In a medium skillet, heat 1/2-inch of vegetable oil (about 2 cups) over medium-high heat to 350 degrees. Lay shrimp down on their sides and fry for 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Work in batches as needed. Transfer shrimp to a paper towel-lined platter and keep warm until ready to serve.
