Personal Notes:
Frying frozen shrimp ensures they do not overcook, while giving the crumb time to develop into that delicious golden color. The coating adheres better and doesn't fall apart.

If you don't have time to freezer them, you can still go ahead and fry them up as soon as you've finished breading them. Just keep in mind the crump may begin to fall apart after a minute of cooking.
