What flavour will you choose? With Potato Chip Shrimp there are plenty Potato Chip varieties and flavours to temp you. My first instinct was dill pickle of course, because to me it is reminiscent of tartar sauce with dill pickles and a good pairing with shrimp. BBQ, sour cream and onion or salt and vinegar are also great flavours to work with. I find that BBQ on its own is a good all round coating that comes out nicely seasoned and would make a good coating for most anything. You really can’t go wrong with any flavour that you use as the potato chips in general make a surprisingly thick and crispy coating.
What I found oddly interesting about using potato chips in this fashion is that the potato chips have trouble being ground down really fine. Which is odd, because chips will turn into micro dust if you eat them in bed or on the sofa? Secondly, a deep fried potato chip coating isn’t greasy as one might think since you are essentially deep frying a deep fried product. You will be pleased with the results.
It seems the oil already in the potato chip prevents them from really grinding down as mentioned earlier but this same oil allows you to really pack on the coating as it tends to stick together well. So the next time you’re looking for a great party snack, don’t just put those potato chips out in a bowl. Turn them into something worthy for your gathering of friends. Enjoy!
