Spicy Popcorn shrimp

TOTAL TIME: 26-30 MINS

PREP TIME: 15-20 MINS

Cook: 1o-12 MINS

Ingredients 

1/2 lb of fresh baby shrimp, peeled

1 cup flour, seasoned with salt and pepper

1 1/2 cups of Bread crumbs

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

2 1/2 teaspoons paprika

1 egg, lightly beaten

oil for deep-frying


 Buffalo Ranch  Sauce 

1 (16 oz.) of sour cream

1 (1 oz.) package Ranch salad dressing mix

1/2 cup Red hot Buffalo Wing Sauce

1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes

In a bowl, mix all ingredients, cover and chill for an hour before serving with shrimp.

 

Directions

 

1.Set up a breading station with your shrimp, the flour, the lightly beaten egg, and bread crumbs.

2.Take a handful of shrimp and dip them in the flour, shake off the excess, dip them in the eggs, and then in the the bread crumbs.Make sure each shrimp is coated. Set the coated shrimp aside on a plate while you continue to coat all your shrimp.

3.While you’re coating your shrimp, heat up at least 2 inches of oil to 375˚F in a deep pot.
4.Fry the shrimp in batches to keep the oil a consistent heat. Using a strainer, gently lower some shrimp into the hot oil. Deep fry the shrimp until golden brown and crunchy, about 3-5 minutes.
5. While shrimp are frying, make sure that they don’t stick together.
6.When golden-brown, drain the shrimp on a cooling rack with paper towels underneath. Continue to fry in batches until all the shrimp are cooked.

Spicy southern collard greens

Hot & spicy is how I like my collard greens. A classic “North Carolina” recipe that my grandma made all the time. With Ham hocks to add extra flavor . Add some paprika and red pepper flakes, while the Greens are simmering in chicken stock. This recipe is full of southern, soulful flavor. Serve with some  delicious cornbread.

 Spicy southern collard greens 

PREP: 10 MINS

MINS COOK: 3 HRS

TOTAL TIME: 3 HR 10 MINS

 

 

Ingredients 

4 pounds collard greens, rinsed and trimmed

1 1/2 pounds ham hocks

5 cups chicken stock

1/2 Teaspoon  crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons of sugar
1 cup diced onions
1 Tablespoon of paprika
salt and pepper to taste

 

 
 

 Directions

1.You must wash and soak really good. Last last thing you want is dirty greens.

2.Place chicken stock and the ham hock in a large pot with a tight-fitting lid. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat to very low and simmer covered for 30 minutes.

3.Add the collards, paprika,salt, pepper, sugar, red pepper flakes, and onions to the pot. Simmer covered for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

 4.Add the vegetable oil and simmer covered for 30 minutes.
