Coconut shrimp a very versatile dish that can be served as an entreė or appetizer. Our version has a spicy kick and we serve it as an Hors D’oeuvres with a  sweet and zesty mango marmalade dipping sauce.

Total time – 30 min.

Yields – 1 party tray for 8-12 people.

Serving suggestion – as an Hors D’oeuvres

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup beer
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (adjust heat to taste)
  • 2 cups flaked coconut
  • 24 large shrimps
  • 3 cups oil for frying

Procedure

In medium bowl, combine egg, 1/2 cup flour, beer, ground red pepper and baking powder. Place 1/4 cup flour and coconut in two separate bowls.    

Hold shrimp by tail, and dredge in flour, shaking off excess flour. Dip in egg/beer batter; allow excess to drip off. Roll shrimp in coconut, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil to 350 degrees F in a deep-fryer.

Fry shrimp in batches: cook, turning once, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Using tongs, remove shrimp to paper towels to drain. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.

  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
