Sugar Shrimp

Part of a quick dinner night last night. Raw tail-on shrimp quickly fried in about two tablespoons of peanut oil. I used to always use butter, but grabbed vegetable oil by accident one time and liked it better. Rinse the frozen shrimp under cool water until thawed. Then, toss the shrimp with a little bit of table sugar. That helps balance the natural salty flavor and gives the shrimp a light caramel crisp when doing the quick saute in oil. These are good cold, too, if you want to use them in a salad.
