Copycat Recipe of Hooter's Buffalo Shrimp - Top Secret Recipes

Vegetable oil for frying
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup Crystal Louisiana Hot Sauce or Frank's Red Hot (This is what I used)
dash of ground pepper
dash of garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon paprika
12 uncooked large shrimp shelled and deveined
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. You want the oil deep enough to cover the shrimp completely.

Combine the butter, hot sauce, ground pepper, garlic powder, and paprika in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well blended.

Combine the egg with the milk in a small bowl. Put the flour into another bowl.

Dredge each shrimp in the milk mixture, then coat it with the flour. Make sure each shrimp is evenly coated. When you have coated all the shrimp with flour, let them sit for about 10 minutes in the refrigerator before frying.

Fry the shrimp in the hot oil for 7-10 minutes or until the tip of each tail begins to turn dark brown. Remove the shrimp from the oil to paper towels briefly to drain.
