  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Vegetable oil for frying

  1. Start by preparing your breading station. In one bowl, combine the shredded coconut and panko breadcrumbs.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.
  3. Place the flour in a third bowl.
  4. Take each shrimp and dip it first in the flour, then the egg mixture, and finally, coat it with the coconut and breadcrumb mixture. Press the coating firmly to adhere.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a deep skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Carefully add the coated shrimp and fry until they turn golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Remove the shrimp from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  7. Serve the Crispy Coconut Shrimp hot with sweet chili sauce for dipping.
