    BeachGirl's Note:

    Inspired by a trip to Hawaii, these delicious, crispy golden shrimp have a nutty flavor, with a slight hint of coconut. The Honey Mustard Sauce is their perfect complement OR serve with Chinese Sweet and Sour Sauce, Chinese Sweet and Sour Sauce. Great for appetizers (use medium size shrimp) or a meal!

      Great recipe! I added some spices to the batter like paprika and cayenne. Will definately make again.

      My son told me this is a "keeper". I made no changes to this recipe. I ran out of coconut about three-quarters of the way through, but just put more in bowl #3.

      This was just delightful! I did use 1 pound colossal shrimp. I found the recipe to use more club soda and I used 1 1/2 cups coconut flakes. The honey mustard sauce had just the right oomph!
