Spicy Shrimp with Lemon-Butter Sauce

I saw some shrimps from the vendor passing by, they looked fresh so I decided to buy some and experiment on it.

What you need

1/2K of shrimps (take out shells)
1 medium lemon, lime or 10pieces of calamansi (juiced, set aside half of the juice to make the dip)
1 egg beaten,
salt and pepper
fine bread crumbs (add a lot of pepper to make it spicy or get a pack of spicy chicken breading mix)
chili powder
3 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons of oil (olive oil works wonders)

What you need to do:

Marinade the shrimps in 1/2 of citrus juice, salt, and pepper be careful to not leave it too long or you'll end up with "cooked" shrimps.

Mix your breadcrumbs with salt, pepper, chili powder and garlic powder in a separate bowl.

Dip the shrimps in egg and coat it evenly with your spicy breadcrumb mix.

Fry in a pre-heated pan until golden brown. Put on paper towels to drain excess oil.

-For the dip

Melt non-fat butter on a pan, add lemon/lime/calamansi (the half that you set aside), simmer for two minutes.

Arrange the shrimps on a plate, top with cheese and serve with the dip. This dish goes well with toasted bread.
