Japanese fusion recipe: Fried Shrimp with homemade bread crumbs

Homemade bread crumbs is another way to use up leftover stale bread.

To make bread crumbs, use a food processor to grind bread or just crush bread with your hands. If the bread is too moist, you can microwave or heat in a oven to dry.

This is fried shrimp I cooked on the other day with my own bread crumbs. Since I wanted a light breading for the shrimp this time, I ground the bread well and microwaved for couple of mins.

This fried shrimp is crispy but yet very light. You can enjoy the taste of shrimp well with this breading.
