"When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be."........
Some of the recipes that I have tried,tested and tasted..and some that I want to try,test and taste... :) ....and other useful information all collected and saved in one place.....

Serves 3 to 4
3 large eggs 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 lb. jumbo raw shrimp, peeled and deveined, leaving tails on 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs Vegetable oil
Beat eggs in a medium bowl until frothy. Mix flour, salt, and pepper in another medium bowl. Dredge shrimp in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip shrimp into eggs and then coat both sides with panko, pressing panko onto shrimp.
Pour enough oil into a large, heavy pot to reach depth of 2 inches and heat oil to 350°F. Working in batches, add shrimp to hot oil and deep-fry until cooked through, about 1 minute.
Remove and drain shrimp on paper towels. Arrange shrimp on platter. If desired, serve with tonkatsu sauce for dipping.
