Adding panko breadcrumbs to the flour is brilliant!


We always got to Paesanos for our birthdays and anniversary and order Shrimp Paesanos. This is a good copy cat version. I also don't place in the oven. I saute on both sides which makes it crunchier. My hubby said the last time I made this he thinks it is better than what we order at Pisanos.

I have eaten this since I was a little girl at the old Paesanos. I have made it a couple of times and everyone who has had it a long time ago, like me, rave about it, including my parents. Perfect recipes.
