Transfer to a paper towel to absorb excess oil and serve immediately.
- Garlic mayonnaise
In a mixing bowl, combine the egg yolk, mustard and minced garlic. With the help of a whisk, slowly add the oil to emulsify. Continue in this manner until you reach a nice thick consistency. Add lime juice and seaso nto taste with salt and pepper. Set aside in the fridge.
In a basket, place all of the fried shrimp on the outside and set a little bowl of the mayonnaise in the middle.
You can always serve it in individual dishes as well, with the mayonnaise underneath.
Last option would be to place them on skewers and plant the skewers in foam or a fake bouquet for an original presentation.
Garnish all versions with the cillantro leaves.
The different presentations are important to consider depending on what type of event you are hosting.
