Coconut Shrimp

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I love watching food network and I just saw a yummy recipe for coconut shrimp that happens to be gluten free. you devein the shrimp,leaving the little end of the tail to hold it, then dip in cornstarch that also has salt and pepper (he used white and cayenne). I'm sure you can use any seasonings you like, then he dipped them in lightly beaten eggwhite and last in freshly grated coconut then fried in about an inch of oil. (he used peanut, but I know this would be an allergy issue for many, I'm sure you could fry it in just about any oil, he pan fried it) Sounds good to me and I just wanted to share it.

Hello, all.

My mother and I made a recipe for coconut shrimp that tastes almost like Joe's Crab Shack. We even made the dipping sauce! Here's our recipe:

1 lb. med-lg. shrimp (peeled, deveined)

2 eggs, beaten

1/4 c. cold water

2/3 c. cornstarch

sm. pkg. coconut

1 T. sugar

1 t. salt

1/2 c. rice flour

2 T. coconut flour

Mix eggs and water; set aside.

Place 1/3 c. cornstarch in bowl of shrimp to dredge. Shrimp will look "gluey."

Mix remaining cornstarch, coconut, sugar, salt, and flours.

Heat oil for deep frying

Dip the shrimp in the egg wash, then roll in coconut mixture. Fry until shrimp float.

Dipping Sauce

1 8oz can crushed pineapple (w/ juice)

1/2 c. sugar

1/4 c. red plum preserves

1/2 c. yellow sweet &sour sauce

Mix all ingredients togethers and simmer over low heat for about 5 min.

Yes, I had to stop eating Schar bread because I was getting sick on it all the time. I believe if I am not mistaken (it has been a long time) the Artisan line does not. I received this tip from someone else, and I don’t know if it is accurate but it seemed to help me, at least.
