Crispy Gluten-free Coconut Shrimp

Celiac.com 07/16/2015 - Crispy coconut shrimp is a very popular dish these days. It’s easy enough in theory, to make, but also easy to get wrong.

This recipe does crispy coconut shrimp right…and gluten-free.

Thank you for trying Kerry! I was unable to open the link though. Another celiac.com page pops up telling me I do not have an account for it.

I don't use these things they are usually sodium bombs!

I don't Usually use the super processed stuff, which this is. I use the spices or the gluten free spice mixes. I assume maybe something just didn't set well but I doubt it's gluten because I believe they're reputable. My husband doesn't have celiac and said his tummy is weird too, so I doubt it's gluten. I'll call them today to be sure.

I use them, too.
