First dip the shrimp into the egg and milk mixture, then drop it into the flour. Coat the shrimp with the flour with the dry hand and then drop it back into the milk mixture. When it's completely moistened drop it into the Cornflake crumbs and coat it again. set each shrimp on a plate until all of them are coated. Drop the shrimp into the fryer and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the outside is golden. Serve with a wedge of lemon and cocktail sauce for dipping.
