    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    There is almost no fat in this recipe, please make certain to generously grease your baking pan, I use the non-stick foil for this --- This complete recipe can be doubled to about 52-53 shrimp, enough to feed a crowd! If your coconut flakes are very large, then just chop them slightly, they will stick to the egg whites better. Cooking time is estimated depending on size of your shrimp --- serve the shrimp with pineapple or a fruit salsa --- your going to love this shrimp! ;-)

      This was great! I used half panko and half coconut, but I think next time I'll use 2/3 coconut and 1/3 panko, for more of the yummy toasted coconut! I put a little pineapple juice and a little coconut extract in the egg whites too. I served with sauce made from light sour cream, vanilla yogurt, crushed pineapple, dash of ceyanne, and some coconut extract. Thanks for another Superb recipe Kittencal!

      These turned out really good. I used an orange marmalade and horseradish to dip these in. Thanks for posting!

      Really good. I prepared a little different because it was taking so long to prepare each shrimp individually. Instead I did it in several batches, tossed a handful of the shrimp around in the corn starch then dropped them all into the egg white and then laid them on a piece of foil and sprinkled coconut over it and sort of patted on there. It went much faster that way and still had all the great taste. I served with pineapple rice with long beans.
