Yummy, crispy and so flavorful! These go great with a Marmalade or Apricot Preserves Dipping Sauce. Good for you too!

Really great recipe!! I wanted to make use of leftover sweetened coconut I had on hand, and this seemed to be a great fit. I love coconut shrimp, and the added benefit of it being healthy and baked was a bonus! No changes made - will definitely make again! Thank you!!
