Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I upped the flour & cornmeal to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup beer - SOO good! I coat the shrimp in plain flour then, dip in egg and milk mixture, then dredge in flour, cornmeal and seasonings . . . SOOO good!

Had a little trouble coating the shrimp evenly. I substituted garlic powder for red pepper. Served it with shoe string french fries and it all tasted like fish and chips from England. According to my husbands memory from his years there. perfect together.
