Butterflied my shrimp so I could get more coconut on them! I was successful. Yum!
Excellent coconut shrimp!!! I am not a fan of coconut, but somehow, really like fried coconut shrimp, weird!!! This was very easy and the coating was great. The only change I may make is to omit the sugar, as I find the coconut sweet enough. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. Made for ZWT8.
This is one of those recipes that could get a gal in serious trouble! It is way too easy and beyond way too good to not make all the time. I made the batter with some of our homebrewed hefeweissen and served it with a creamy pineapple dipping sauce. What a delight!
