  • Cut off small ends of passion fruits. Scoop out pulp and seeds into mesh strainer placed over blender container; press down on pulp with back of spoon to extract juice. Add sour cream and honey to juice; cover. Blend well; set aside.
  • Mix corn flake crumbs, cornmeal and pepper in shallow dish; set aside. Beat egg lightly in separate shallow dish. Dip shrimp in egg, then in corn flake mixture, turning over to evenly coat both sides. Gently shake off excess crumb mixture.
  • Heat oil in large deep skillet or saucepan on medium-high heat to 350°F to 375°F. Add shrimp, in batches; cook 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels. Serve with the passion fruit sauce.

Cooking Know-How

Keep an eye on the temperature of the oil. Oil that is too hot will result in food that is overbrowned on the outside and undercooked inside. Oil that is not hot enough will result in grease-soaked food.
