Half Breaded Shrimp with Olive Oil 'farofa'

Well, today i decided to cook some shrimps, since it been while i havent had sea food. Also, i had some japanese bread crumbs, so it was a must to use it.

What you gonna need:
4 Big sized Shrimp
20 ml milk
40 grams of bread crumbs
Salt and pepper as you like
50 ml olive oil
for the 'farofa'
50 grams of manioc flour
15 ml olive oil

Well, to start you need to mix the milk and the bread crumbs. Mind the milk, do not put more than needed, because it cant be runny at all. add salt and pepper as you like.Put that mix of milk and breadcrumbs in one side of the shrimps; Hot a fryin pan, and since its not fully breaded, we dont need to deep fry the shrimp. Start fryin the shrimp with the breaded side down, this its nicely brown, then cook the other side.
Well, the side is called 'farofa' is really traditional in brasil. It maybe quite hard to find manioc flour outside Brazil, but you basically need to heat up olive oil, add the manioc flour. Add salt, and mix it well.Leave it to cook for a couple minutes, mindint the temperature, it can't be too high or the flour get burnt. Simple and good.
