RE: I love FRIED SHRIMP! Where's the best to be had?
I will only be able to add partial information about the place where I used to get some wonderful Fried Shrimp, as the last time I was there was about 10 years ago, and I haven't a clue as to wether it is still in business or not. It was a small Seafood store offering fresh-raw or fresh-fried seafood of various types. Owned by some Asian folks. It was located in the small business district located right outside the main gate of Fort Dix, in Wrightstown, New Jersey. They sold scallops, clams, unshucked Oysters, and several varieties of shrimp and fish. You could buy it raw and take it home to prepare, or order individual servings deep-fried. In addition to several "sizes" of Shrimp they offered large Stuffed Shrimp. That was a large 'butterflied' shrimp with about a tablespoon (or more)of crab-stuffing spread on one side, then bread/battered and fried.
The last time I purchased them (1997) they sold for about a buck apiece. Three would be great and four or more would fill a person without room for side dishes. Fresh and hot out of the fryer, they were an outstanding 'snack'. Our favorite use was to buy several, take them and some spicy cocktail sauce to the nearby park on Ft Dix, from which we could watch the airplane 'action' on the runways of McGuire AFB and watch the jets while dipping those great Shrimp. If any of you know the name of the place, or if it is still around, post it please. It was a great place to get some absolutely great Shrimp.
