Captain Crunch Shrimp

2/3 cup beer
1/2 cup masa flour
1 egg
2 TBSP white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cups Cap'N Crunch cereal, crushed
1/2 cup cornmeal
24 shrimp
3 cups oil for frying

For Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup marmalade
2 TBSP deli-style Dijon mustard

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
Whisk beer, masa flour, egg, sugar and baking powder together in a bowl until beer batter is smooth.
Place crushed cereal in a shallow bowl and cornmeal in a third shallow bowl.
Dredge shrimp through cornmeal, holding shrimp by the tail.
Shake off excess cornmeal.
Dip shrimp in beer batter, allowing excess to drip back into batter.
Roll shrimp in the crushed cereal until evenly coated.
Arrange coated shrimp on the prepared baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350-degrees.
Working in batches, fry shrimp in the hot oil, turning once, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
Transfer cooked shrimp to a paper towel-lined plate using tongs.
Stir marmalade and mustard together in a bowl until sauce is smooth.
Serve cooked shrimp alongside dipping sauce.
