Coconut Shrimp


One of my favorite from Forest Gump’s list!

Step 1 (this takes the longest):  Using large, uncooked, shell-on shrimp… peel the shell off all the way to the tail.  Be sure to clean out the vein or buy them already de-veined.

Step 2:  Season the shrimp with salt, corriander, and curry powder.  Set aside in the fridge.

Step 3: Using a large bowl, mix together Panko breadcrumbs with sweetened coconut flakes to create the coating/breading.

Step 4:  In another large bowl, beat 3 or 4 eggs.

Step 5:  Drop the shrimp in the eggs and then into the coconut coating.

Step 6:  Heat Canola Oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.  Saute the breaded shrimp about 2 or 3 minutes per side.  Don’t crowd the pan, work in batches.

Step 7: Remove the browned shrimp to a paper towel lined baking sheet.  Lightly season with salt and pat off any excess oil.  Repeat the steps until all the shrimp are cooked.
