Renegade Chef Recipe: Coconut Shrimp

Posted: May 23, 2013 - 10:44am

Coconut Shrimp

1 egg

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup beer

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups flaked coconut

24 shrimp

3 cups oil for frying

In medium bowl, combine egg, 1/2 cup flour, beer 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 (175 degrees C) 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.
