  Shrimp on a Stick    

27 Shrimp (get the 27-30/lb size)
1/2 Box Golden Dipt Cajun Style seasoning fry mix
1 Tbsp Course ground pepper
4 Large yellow onions
1/2 Tsp Paparika
1 Tsp Old Bay seasoning
3/4 Tsp Garlic Powder (good for your heart...)
1/2 Tsp Salt  (not good for your heart...)
1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning (optional)
1 Cup canola oil or equivalent oil
  Cooking skewers (wood or metal)


Wash shrimp and clean by de-veining (if necessary - some come cleaning already).

Cut onions length-wise after removing skins.  Quarter each half to provide large onion peal layers.

In a shallow pie dish, empty fry mix, pepper, Paparika, Old Bay Seasoning, garlic powder, salt and cajun seasoning.  Mix very well and slowly add water stirring until the mixture has a somewhat thick consistency that will stick to the shrimp.

Start adding to the skewer with shrimp, then onion alternating.  You should be able to put 3 or 4 shrimp on a skewer making sure the skewer will fit in your pan. You decide how much onion to add between the shrimp.

Add oil to a large skillet and heat to medium. 

Give the shrimp-onion skewer a good bath in the mixture and let excess fall off before placing in the heated oil.  Cook until golden brown turning occasionally.

Place on paper towels to drain excess oil


Note:  Add extra pepper or Cajun seasonings to bring out that "Naw leans" flavor.
