1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled & deveined
1/2 cup flour

Dip each shrimp in the flour, then in the beaten eggs.

Repeat this procedure once more and lay the shrimp out on waxed paper.

Pour enough peanut oil into a saute pan to cover the bottom. Heat over medium heat. Add the shrimp and saute slowly until golden brown.

Reduce the heat and add the butter. When melted, add the Marsala wine. Squeeze the lemon juice over, cover, and simmer for 3-4 minutes.

I had some shrimp to cook and wanted to try something new. Found a new favorite! Very easy recipe. Ready in just minutes too which is nice. Served with rice pilaf.

I was dubious about the egg coating on the shrimp. I hadn't done shrimp that way before but you know what? It was really good! And the marsala wine was a wonderful touch - it gave the dish a lot of depth. I highly recommend it.
