Raw Shrimp, Breaded
There are a number of forms in which shrimp is breaded. The most common in the U.S. are breaded butterfly, clean tail-on and breaded round, tail-off.
Breaded butterfly, clean tail-on, is a raw shrimp with the 5th through 2nd shell segments are removed and the 1st and the tail still on the shrimp.
Similar to a easy peel and a PNDTO, the large intestine is removed but the depth of the cut is such that both halves of the shrimp can lay flat. A pre-batter and final batter is applied with attention paid to the tail to keep that portion free of breading.
A breaded round, tail-off, is a raw shrimp with all shell segments and tail removed, as well as the large intestine. A pre-batter and final-batter are applied covering all the shrimp. This form is also referred to as a popcorn shrimp.
