A tasty coconut shrimp recipe
"Yum! I don't like shrimp so I substituted fake crab sticks. Instead of deep frying, I sauteed in peanut oil. Turned out great! I used Bob's Red Mill unsweetened coconut and it blended so well with the panko, even my non coconut eaters ate it. I thought the dipping sauce was very good. We had 2 who really liked the sauce, one that didn't, and one that refused to try it..."- pols005

Pat the shrimp dry, In small bowl, combine cornstarch, salt , pepper and cayenne. In a 2nd bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy, In another bowl place the coconut and bread crumbs together (tip)you may run the coconut and bread crumbs through the magic bullet or blender to make them finer), Coat shrimp with cornstarch and shake off excess. Dip into egg white and then press into coconut to get full coverage.
Heat peanut oil or what ever kind that you have, to 350, gently submerge shrimp 6 at a time, fry until golden on each side, Remove to paper towels to drain,
For the sauce: Mix marmalade, mustard, horseradish, and salt
Dip shrimp and enjoy

Cowboyranger89 1 year agoI tried this recipe tonite and the family loved it! Thanks
valerieshippee 1 year agoTried this recipe 2 nights ago on a whim. It was excellent and not that hard to make. Loved it and so did my husband (the perfectionist). Only thing I didn't have on hand was the orange marmalade. I substituted with apricot mango marmalade. Fantastic. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe. Will definitely make this again soon!
CindyLouWho73 1 year agoThese came out SO flippin' good! I made them for my dad's 60th birthday party. They were a big hit. I made a couple of different dipping sauces: the one in the recipe and then a spicy peanut one, and a non-spicy marmalade one.

Keifuz 3 years agoReally nice... I'd probably put a bit more seasoning (salt & red pepper) next time. I'd also love to have a sweet chili oil dipping sauce with it maybe. But all went well with great results.
corynns 3 years agoThe shrimp came out so well and was so easy to make! Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The flavors were perfect. Will cook again! I can't comment on the sauce. I made my own. I'm sure it is lovely too.

thetitan99 4 years agoThese were awesome!! I used 2 kg of GIANT prawns and we ate them till we were sick!! Excellent!! I used fresh coconut and toasted it in a dry pan for 3 minutes before blending it with the bread crumbs. I also let them set up in the fridge for 30 minutes. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly!! Medal worthy for sure.
Dannynicol 4 years agoThe shrimp looks amazing! I want to try this recipe soon, but I have 1 question: Did you use fresh or packaged coconut? I absolutely hate packaged, so I will use fresh regardless, but I'm just wondering. Thanks! Danny
