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...

This is the best recipe ever for coconut shrimp. Everyone, including my very picky critics at home, loves it.

Tried 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!

These 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.
