A delicious and healthy version of coconut shrimp! Made with real coconut and gluten-free and grain-free flours for a nostalgic treat!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil until hot enough to fry.
  2. Wash, de-vein, and peel shrimp leaving tails on.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with about a teaspoon of water.
  4. In another bowl, mix together the shredded coconut, almond flour, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and pepper.
  5. Dip each shrimp into the egg and then into the almond flour/coconut mixture until well coated.
  6. Quickly place into preheated pan of oil.
  7. Cook approximately 3 minutes per side and don’t touch at all between flipping them.
  8. When done, remove and sprinkle with additional salt.
  9. Enjoy!

Notes

I use fresh pineapple, the cream from the top of the coconut milk, and a little honey to make a piña colada dipping sauce (this one's our favorite!) OR Blend fresh mango with a splash of vinegar and some olive oil for a mango sauce (pictured).
