While you’re aware of the holiday that takes place on December 25th, another, lesser-known holiday occurs a few days before. December 21st marks a unique celebration, National French Fried Shrimp Day! Shrimp happens to be the most popular seafood in the United States. That’s right, we sure do love our shrimp. We tend to gravitate towards food that’s loaded with flavor, and much like French fries, french-fried shrimp is deep-fried in oil to give it its unique flavor that so many love.
