Low-FODMAP Crispy Breaded Shrimp Recipe; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves 4-6

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes


For the shrimp:

  • 3/4 cup low-FODMAP, gluten-free, all-purpose flour (I prefer Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend or plain rice flour without leavening agents)
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup low-FODMAP milk (such as almond milk, or lactose-free milk)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups low-FODMAP, gluten-free breadcrumbs; homemade or store-bought
    • I used my own homemade breadcrumbs (see link above), so these are a bit more chunky than the store-bought variety
  • 1 tsp low-FODMAP Happy Spices Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 & 1/2 lbs raw, good quality shrimp, shelled and deveined (tails off or on, per your preference)
  • Canola oil for frying, or other preferred oil with a high heat point


  • Add enough oil to come 1-2 inches up the sides of a medium sized heavy duty pan or cast iron skillet and preheat to about 360 degrees (can also use a deep fryer, if you have one)
  • Lay out 2 plates or baking sheets and line these with paper towels, one will be for the shrimp after you have them breaded, and the second will be for plating them once cooked
  • Set up three bowls to prepare the shrimp, about medium sized
    • One will contain low-FODMAP flour, cornstarch and salt
    • In the second, place your eggs, and whisk these with the low-FODMAP milk
    • The third should contain the low-FODMAP breadcrumbs, low-FODMAP Italian seasoning and paprika
  • Dredge shrimps in the low-FODMAP flour mixture, then shake off the excess, and dip in the egg mixture, followed by the breadcrumb mixture.  I suggest doing them one at a time, then setting on your paper towel lined baking sheet or plate until they are all finished
  • Once all shrimp are ready to cook, place them in the hot oil until golden brown and crispy on both sides, turning once
    • Cook in batches that you are able to handle, I suggest no more than 3-4 shrimp
    • Careful of the hot oil, use oven gloves and a spatter guard as necessary
    • The shrimp will cook super-fast (literally within about 30 seconds per side), so watch closely. Once they are golden brown, on each side they will likely be done
  • Lay shrimp that are cooked on your second paper towel covered plate until serving to keep warm
  • Serve with low-FODMAP Shrimp Cocktail sauce, or low-FODMAP Tartar Sauce
