    G.A.B.'s Note:

    This recipe for Put the Lime in the Coconut Shrimp brings the taste of the islands home. A getaway for your senses, crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside with flaky coconut and hints of lime and beer. Goes great with a light beer, or lime flavored beer.

      In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, beer, lime juice and cilantro.

      Toss the fresh shrimp in the flour mixture, one at a time, until they are thoroughly coated and set aside.
    4. 4
      Whisk together the remaining flour mixture into the egg mixture to create a batter. Add flour if necessary (1 tsp at a time to thicken) - should be fairly thick, like pancake batter.

    7. 7
      Place the shrimp on a pan lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to a maximum of 4 hours in advance of frying.
    8. 8
      When you're ready to fry them, heat the oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 365 Degrees Fahrenheit.
    9. 9
      Fry the shrimp, a few at a time, 2 to 3 minutes each (or until golden brown) and place onto paper towel to allow the excess oil to drain.
    10. 10

      Although I was going to make this for supper one night, some friends were over for a late night visit & after talking about some of the recipes I'd be making for PAC, we decided then & there to make this shrimp for the 4 of us! Actually quite easy to prepare, I thought, & the taste is out of this world ~ Very, very nice! A definite keeper of a recipe!
