Ingredients for Shrimp Mac and Cheese 1 lbs of shrimp
1/4 cup of butter
Vegetable oil for frying shrimp
Green onion for garnish
3 cups of shredded cheddar, mild , sharp,& white
1 cup corn meal
1 cup flour
2 cups elbow pasta
1 tsp lemon pepper 1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chilli powder
Step 1: Boil Your Macaroni
Grab a nice size pot fill it with water and bring to a boil make sure you add a little salt to the water as well once up to a simmer add your pasta and cook until al dente.
Step 2: Make Rue for Cheese Sauce
So in a separate saucepan melt your butter. Once melted slowly add your flour always whisking you want to end up with a doughy texture, then that's when the best part comes you want to slowly stir in some milk NOW I say slowly add it because how much milk you add will determine the thickness. Once you have desired thickness add your cheese!
Step 3: Bake Mac N Cheese
Grab a baking dish that has good size walls add butter to your pasta and add your cheese sauce make sure it's well mixed together and add a layer of shredded cheese on top to get that beautiful crust that everyone likes, I don't know why but to me it's like food nudes any ways back to the scheduled program your gonna want to bake for about 10-15 mins or until the top is golden brown.
Step 4: Prep the Shrimp
Now if you're lazy like I am about washing dishes then you can buy de shelled and deveined shrimp and skip this whole step, But if your like me about the cooking process then grab your shrimp and peel back the shell and press it a tad and run your knife to butterfly the chicken of the sea that is shrimp!
Step 5: Batter Shrimp & Fry
Now season some flour and corn meal with all your seasonings and mix well, dredge shrimp in flour First then proceed to give them suckers an egg bath let them swim after they're done going in for a dip coat them very well in the breadcrumbs. Grab a nice dense pan and fill pan until the amount is enough to submerge shrimp and fry on both sides about 2-3 mins.
Step 6: Serve and Enjoy
Serve some mac on a plate top off mac with a few shrimps and if you like, chop up some green onions and garnish . Hope you enjoy and make sure to subscribe YouTube @EATffortlesscooking
