Easy Breaded Shrimp is super easy to make and the accompanying sauce adds something extra special. This meal goes well with practically any side dish!



For the shrimp:

1 lb shrimp, peeled & deveined

1 cup flour

1 egg

avocado oil

salt & pepper to taste

For the Sauce:

1 heaping teaspoon red curry paste

1/4 cup mayonnaise

3 dashes of hot sauce, or to taste


  1. Make sauce and set aside. Whisk egg and set aside. Season shrimp, add flour to a plastic bag, add shrimp and shake until shrimp are evenly coated. Remove shrimp from bag, shaking off excess flour and place into egg. Once all shrimp are added, gently move the pieces to make sure all are coated with egg. Remove shrimp one at a time and add back to floured bag, shaking again until all pieces are re-coated.
  2. Place a pan on the stove, turn to medium heat, and add oil. Allow the pan to heat before adding the shrimp.  Place shrimp in pan ensuring there is a bit of space between them. After about 2 minutes, flip the shrimp and continue cooking for 2 more minutes. They should be golden brown on both sides.
