  • 1 pound large shrimp peeled, de-veined, and tails removed, (you can keep them on and remove them after they are cooked if you prefer)
  • 2 teaspoons creole seasoning divided
  • cup flour
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • cup mayo


  • Preheat a large nonstick pan or skillet over medium-high heat with about 3 teaspoons of olive oil.
  • Wash shrimp and pat dry with a paper towel or other clean towel. Place panko crumbs in a small bowl. In a second bowl whisk together flour and 1 teaspoon creole seasoning. In a third bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Dip shrimps into the flour, tossing to coat. Then dip them in the egg mixture, and finally into the panko crumbs.
  • Add shrimp to preheated pan (if your pan is not big enough, do half of the shrimp at a time) and cook 3-4 minutes on the first side, until browned. Carefully flip shrimp and cook 3-4 minutes on second side. Don't stir the shrimp around, they will lose their coating. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb any extra oil.
  • In a small bowl whisk together mayo and remaining creole seasoning. Serve as dipping sauce with the shrimp. Enjoy!
