2 c.Hy-Vee vegetable oil

Things To Grab

  • Spiral slicer
  • Medium bowl
  • Paper towel
  • Medium skillet

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
