Lemon Pepper Shrimp w/ Lemon Pepper Ranch

If it wasn’t obvious from the title, I’m really trying to get the fact that lemon pepper was used in this across. It wasn’t till I started making my own lemon pepper seasoning did I get on the lemon pepper train. Like many things it is way better than anything from a canister. Now when it comes to frying shrimp my go to breading station is heavy cream into panko. It results in the lightest and crispiest shrimp ever. The seasoning is a lot more lemon pepper forward while the dressing is a lot more subtle. I have a couple really cool ranch dressing recipes coming out this month and also some more recipes utilizing this ranch! Try it out and let me know what you think!
