Recipe Notes

  • Make a quick tropical dipping sauce by combining 1/2 cup orange marmalade and 2 tablespoons honey.
  • Try this cooking method with fish.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a skillet (you could also use a deep fryer) to 375 degrees F. 
  2. Combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, water and canola oil in a bowl. Mix well. Put the coconut into another bowl.
  3. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Dip the shrimp into the wet batter and then into the coconut. 
  4. Put the shrimp into the hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
