      I substituted almond flour for the crushed almonds and coconut flour for the regular flour. I also used a regular large egg instead of the egg white. It came out a little bit on the Caribbean side which is what I was looking for. I served these with a side of broccoli in butter and lemon sauce with real bacon pieces. Turned out lovely. My husband even enjoyed it and he hates shrimp! Thanks for the idea!!

      These got a really nice crunch from the almonds. I didn't have enough almond/flour and egg white to coat all of my shrimp so I just pan fried the extras. This would go really well with a marmalade dipping sauce. I served it with Mexican rice and beans and it was a nice combination as well. Thank you Kiwi -You picked a winner!
