When we were taking orders for cookies I came across some recipes in a news article (you can find HERE). And because my family LOVES Samoa cookies, and my husband and I LOVE shrimp, the Fried Samoa Shrimp immediately peaked my interest. I have patiently been waiting to try it... So today, I did! And of course being my silly rushed self, I couldn't wait to eat them and I didn't really read ALL of the instructions and two steps into making them I realized- I MESSED UP! I poured the flour in with the cookies when that is completely wrong. Ahhh! So I took out as much flour as I thought necessary and then winged it from there, even adding an additional ingredient. And they were so just over the top amazing even my daughter who HATES shrimp ate them! Alot of them! And now claims she loves shrimp :o) You must try this recipe! Must! And the lime at the end... perfect touch. We had them for dinner with pasta, but these would even be a terrific appetizer. YUM!
