Baked Coconut Shrimp!

Oh what a delicious night! I had coconut shrimp for the first time ever and it was AMAZING!! I am posting the recipe because I would recommend it to everyone! We took a few different recipes and combined them to make this PHENOMENAL treat.
A note of caution: ONLY make the shrimp you plan on eating, if you make more, you may never be able to stop!!!

  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup chicken (or any other kind of) broth
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups flaky coconut
  • 24 shrimp
1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
2 Mix the egg, broth, 1/2 cup of the flour and baking powder in a bowl. Place the remaining flour and the coconut flakes into a separate bowl.
 3 Dip each of the shrimp in the plain flour. Shake off the excess and dunk the shrimp into the batter mixture. Coat each shrimp with the coconut flakes.
4 Place each coated shrimp onto the lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate them for 30 minutes.
(We placed them on parchment paper later, but the picture on aluminum foil turned out better)
5 Place shrimp on the cookie sheet and bake for 15-17 minutes or until coconut is a golden brown. Make sure to turn it once halfway through (around 8 minutes into cooking time) to make sure both sides brown.  
6 Eat them plain or try with cocktail sauce. We loved both! :)
