  • 2

    eggs, beaten

  • cups (310 ml) milk

  • 1

    cup (250 ml) all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tsp (5 ml) each sugar, salt, freshly ground pepper,

    tsp (2 ml) dried thyme

  • 2

    lbs (900 g) peeled crawfish tails or small shrimp

Combine the eggs and milk in a small bowl. Combine the flour and seasonings in a large bowl and stir in the egg mixture. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour. Heat vegetable oil at a depth of 1 inch (2.5 cm) in a skillet over high heat until it reaches 350F (180C). Coat the crawfish in the batter a few at a time and fry in small batches until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes total, turning once or twice. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately. Serves 8 to 12 as an appetizer.
