  • Fill a large pot with enough oil to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat over medium-high heat until it registers 350 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer.

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the batter and the remaining 1/4 cup scallions, 1 tablespoon sesame seeds and 2 teaspoons each poppy seeds and dried garlic. Season the shrimp with salt. Working in batches, hold the shrimp by the tail and dip in the batter mixture; place in the oil and fry, turning once, until golden, about 5 minutes. Drain on the seed-covered paper towels, lightly coating with the mixture. Serve with the scallion cream cheese dip.
