Crispy Coconut Shrimp Bites
Coconut shrimp is the perfect combination of sweet and savory, and our Crispy Coconut Shrimp Bites take this classic dish to a whole new level. These little bites are packed with flavor and are a surefire crowd-pleaser at any gathering.
- 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Oil for frying
- Start by preparing your breading station. In one bowl, combine the shredded coconut and panko breadcrumbs. In another bowl, place the all-purpose flour, and in a third bowl, beat the eggs with salt and pepper.
- Take each shrimp and coat it in the flour, then dip it into the beaten eggs, and finally, coat it in the coconut and breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating.
- Heat about 2 inches of oil in a deep skillet or pot to 350°F (175°C). Fry the coated shrimp in batches for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
- Remove the shrimp bites and drain them on paper towels to remove excess oil.
- Serve your Crispy Coconut Shrimp Bites hot with your favorite dipping sauce. They are perfect with sweet chili sauce or a tangy mango salsa.
