St Augustine style shrimp

sunshine842 | Sep 17, 200903:49 AM     103

Hi guys -- I'm a Florida girl relocated to Europe, and while I'm LOVING the chow scene here (fresh markets, buying Brie *from the producer*...just today saw the butcher taking delivery of whole lambs), once in a while we get a good jones for a taste of something from home.

I've figured out Chipotle's pork carnitas (shoulda seen that one, three of us wolfing down burritoes like we were starving to death!)

I've got the Columbia cookbook, so I can manage a pretty mean 1905 salad and a Cuban sandwich - my paella has been famous for years, and my flan can bring a grown man to his knees.

The one I am having trouble deconstructing is St Augustine shrimp -- like O'Steen's. Anybody have a recipe that has a more-than-passing resemblance? It's the one recipe that we keep talking about, and I just can't muster the light batter.

Help?!
