Oohhh. Fried Shrimp and the best dipping sauce ever! What a treat. This month's newsletter theme is Southern Cooking. The recipe for Mississippi Comeback sauce is a southern tradition that is found all over, with many different versions. I fell in love with this one, and I bet you will too.
Rather than the traditional Heinz Chili Sauce, I added a simple chili sauce, Sambal Oelek. Finding this hot chili sauce has all sorts of fantastic applications. It is a little chunkier than the Heinz variety, and certainly makes a mean Comeback Sauce!
The fried shrimp was so easy. I started with frozen shrimp, and used mayo to hold the low carb breading in place. Worked like a charm. Here is the recipe from this October Diner News. Remember you can order it here.
Fried Shrimp with Comeback Sauce
16 oz frozen medium or large shrimp, precooked or raw
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
3 tbsp almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp refined coconut oil
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp low sugar ketchup
1 tbsp chili sauce
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp hot red pepper sauce
Thaw shrimp and pat dry with paper toweling. Heat oil in a skillet. In a medium bowl, combine shrimp with mayonnaise. Add almond flour and salt, tossing lightly to bread the shrimp. Place into hot oil and fry on each side until lightly brown and crispy.
In a jar, combine all sauce ingredients. Serve as a dipping sauce for the shrimp.
