You need to remove the head and most of the shell leaving the last section of the shell on. Then cut the shrimp almost through lengthwise, remove the “sand vein” and wash the shrimp.

Combine 2 beaten eggs and 1 tsp salt in a bowl. Then combine 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs and 1/2 cup flour in a plate. Place 1/2 cup oil in skillet and heat. Dip each shrimp in egg mixture, then roll in flour with bread crumbs, place in oil and cook until golden brown.

Of course, deep fried food is not very healthy, but it is allowed to indulge yourself every now and then.
