Shrimp Mozzarella Skewers

I was looking at some pics to upload to Facebook, and saw a picture of this recipe.  I made them last Christmas Eve.  Both my men thought they were wonderful!  (The guys are right!!)   So, here's a great recipe to try!

Shrimp Mozzarella Skewers
16 large, fresh shrimp
12 - 16 oz. fresh mozzarella, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
2 beaten eggs
3/4 - 1 c panko bread crumbs
oil for deep frying
grated rind and juice of one lemon
3 crushed bay leaves

Make sure shrimp are peeled and deveined.   Thread shrimp and cheese onto skewers that have been soaked in water for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roll in flour.   Dip each skewer in egg and then roll in panko bread crumbs.  Freeze for 45-60  minutes.
When ready to fry, heat oil to 350*.  Carefully place skewers into oil and fry for 4-5 minutes, until crisp and golden.  Remove from oil, drain on paper towel and place on warmed serving plate.  Drizzle lemon juice over and sprinkle with lemon rind and crushed bay leaves.  Serve immediately!
