Coconut Shrimp


  • Flour
  • 1 bag sweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 lb shrimp
  • oil for frying
  1. Prepare and wash the shrimp. Mix flour and coconut flakes (2 parts flour to 1 part coconut) and spices. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan. You’ll know it’s ready when you stick the back of a wooden spoon in and it bubbles around the spoon.
  3. Drop shrimp in the egg bath (I like to add some extra spices to the eggs too), then coat in flour mixture. Drop in the oil. Fry about 5-6 minutes on each side. Be careful not to put toon many in the pan at once! This will lower the temp of the oil and they’ll take FOREVER to cook.
  4. When shrimp are done, place them on a foil covered baking sheet in the oven to keep warm.
  5. Serve with sweet thai chili sauce!
