Delicious! My husband was eating them off the plate before I could even finish frying them all. I did add a little more beer because my batter was really thick and a little more marmalade to the dipping sauce (I used orange-cranberry, it was excellent)

Was great and ez. I used peanut oil with this so I can have a higher smoke level in the pan and it's better for you.

Oh my gosh! I loved this recipe! I will definitely be making this again! Btw- my family doesn't drink beer and sprite is a great substitute!

VERY DELICIOUS!!! However, I substituted beer w/ white Zinfandel wine! Very easy to make!

Delicious, I made a couple substitutions, I used Olive oil rather than vegetable and a thick stout for my beer. It turned out excellent, also if you don't like Dijon Mustard you can substitute regular mustard in the sauce at no expense to flavour.

This is a recipe for disaster. First, the batter was so thick that when you dip the shrimp in it and then dredge it in the coconut flakes, the batter mixes in with the remaining flakes; then after a few shrimp, the coconut does not stick to them because it's wet. Then, the frying instructions did not indicate how much oil to use - so I used 2 TBSP. Didn't seem like enough so I added more, but then the batter
