Coconut shrimp – the best and crispiest coconut shrimp recipe ever! Takes 20 mins, an easy and budget-friendly shrimp appetizer.
Coconut shrimp is one of my favorite appetizers. There is nothing not to love about crispy and crunchy breadcrumb coated shrimp, coated with sweet coconut flakes. While you can make baked coconut shrimp, nothing beats the deep-fried versions.
Coconut shrimp can be quite expensive and you get only a few of them in each serving. To fix my craving, I developed this amazing recipe at home. For the best result, use tiger prawn or jumbo shrimp. To sweeten up my coconut shrimp, I added some sugar into the beaten egg, which is for dipping the shrimp before coating with panko breadcrumbs and coconut flakes. The end result is an amazing serving of coconut shrimp that is better than any restaurants—plump, juicy, crispy, with a tint of sweetness. Bon appetit!
