    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This is my adaptation of a Robin Miller Quick Fix recipe. She also made a homemade garlic sauce that I didn't care for, so I made these with a traditional sweet & sour dip recipe to accompany them. These turned out so delicious despite the few ingredients.

    1. 1
      You will need a ziptop plastic baggie,2 shallow bowls and a platter set out before you begin.
    2. 2
      Preheat a large skillet over medium-ish heat and heat enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan plus a bit extra (for shallow pan frying).
    3. 3
      In one bowl, whisk together a batter using the egg, beer, baking powder,3/4 cup flour and some salt & pepper to taste, whisking until there are no more big lumps.
    4. 4
      Place some extra flour into a ziptop plastic baggie.
    5. 5
      Place coconut in a separate shallow bowl.
    6. 6
      (DREDGE IN FLOUR):Drop all your shrimp into the baggie, seal bag, and shake until all are lightly dusted with flour.
    7. 7
      (DUNK IN BATTER):Remove from bag and shake off excess flour. Grab 1 shrimp at a time and dip into the beer mixture, holding the tail, and letting excess drip off.
    8. 8
      (COCONUT COATING):Next, drop the wet shrimp into the coconut and roll it around, pressing so the coconut sticks.
    9. 9
      Set onto a platter and repeat until all the shrimp are coated.
    10. 10
      Once all of your shrimp are coated with coconut, fry them in batches of about 6-8 in the heated oil just a few minutes, flipping once to brown & crisp both sides.
    11. 11
      Drain on paper towels and serve with sweet & sour dip.

      This was great! Instead of sweet and sour, we used apricot preserves with a little chili sauce. Very good and very easy.
