After visiting more than 30 restaurants and bars that serve fried shrimp, we knew Red Drum served the best after the first bite. The shrimp are battered and fried tail-on and served in a paper-lined cone. It’s got the crunch and seasoning we’re looking for, but the real distinction is the briny sea water presence that elevates the flavor of the shrimp itself. But don’t skimp out on the cocktail sauce, it’s a winner too. The remoulade is flavored with a little orange and lemon zest, which adds bright citrus flavors. Take one of those golden-brown shrimp and give it a dunk. That’s as good as it gets.
