Recipes: Coconut Shrimp Recipe

I love cooking with coconut and my pantry is always stocked with coconut products, from coconut water to extra virgin coconut oil. Today I found a recipe that uses coconut as one of its ingredients to share with everyone. This will make a perfect party or picnic food, simple and delicious!


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups Japanese Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 pound large shrimp
  • canola oil


  1. In a bowl combine flour, bread crumbs, coconut, sea salt and black pepper.
  2. In a separate bowl add the eggs. Β Add the shrimp to the eggs and submerge.
  3. Pour canola oilΒ into a large pot filling about 1 inch high and put heat to medium. Remove the shrimp a couple at time from egg mixture and dredge in flour and panko bowl. Β Then add them to hot oil to cook for 35-45 seconds or until golden brown. Flip half way through the cooking process.
