Coconut Shrimp

READY IN: 35mins
Top Review by mle234

This is great! I increased the measurements for 20 shrimp, used dried unsweetend coconut flakes, 2T sugar, and 2 XL eggs (I didn't have large). I also pounded the shrimp a little after splitting them (I thought it was part of the recipe but it must've been a step in another coconut shrimp recipe I had looked up - but no harm there). I think next time I'll add another 1T (or so) sugar, but the recipe is fabulous as it is.
