Fried Shrimp

20 large shrimp, peeled and deveined.
Salt and white pepper, to taste.
2 medium eggs.
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard.
1 cup of Rice Krispies.
¾ cup of Corn Flakes.
¼ cup of all-purpose flour
Vegetable oil for frying.

Season the shrimp with the salt and white pepper. Lightly beat the eggs with the mustard. In a medium-sized bowl, crush the Rice Krispies and Corn Flakes into very small crumbs.
Dip each shrimp into the flour, then the egg/mustard mixture, then the cereals mixture. Set aside on a plate until ready to fry.
Pour 1-2 inches of vegetable oil into a deep pot and heat to 350°F (180°C), as measured by a deep fat frying thermometer. Fry the shrimp in batches for about 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Remove and drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
