Sift together all of your dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk together your eggs.

Heat about 1-2 inches of oil in a frying pan to 350 degrees.

Dip each shrimp in the egg, then coat in the flour mixture. Fry the shrimp in small batches for 20-25 minutes each. Once the shrimp are a dark golden brown, transfer to a paper towel covered plate and allow to cool.
