Coconut Shrimp


Coconut Shrimp


This turned out pretty good and light.  Your hands get really dirty preparing.  Here is the recipe.


Nonstick cooking spray

6 tbsp flaked unsweetened coconut

1/4 cup panko

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

4 large egg whites

24 medium shrimp peeled with tales left on, deveined, butterflied, and patted dry


1.) Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray.

2.)  Combine coconut, panko, flour and salt on piece of wax paper.  Beat egg whites in large bowl until frothy: add shrimp to egg whites and toss to coat.  Lift shrimp from egg whites one at a time, letting excess drip back into bowl: coat with coconut mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere. Place shrimp in single layer on baking sheet. Spray shrimp lightly with nonstick spray.  Bake until golden outside and opaque inside, 8-10 minutes.
