Coconut Shrimp can be baked or fried. The No Sugar Added dipping sauce it perfect!
Approximately 1 pound cooked, peeled and deveined prawns. (You can use raw if you like. The prawns cook so quickly that the recipe doesn’t need to be adjusted at all.
2-3 eggs, lightly beaten
approximately 1/4 cup flour of your choice (for dredging)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
*oil for frying
dipping sauce: combine 1/2 cup no sugar added peach preserves with 1 tbsp of chilli garlic sauce
Have eggs beaten in a bowl, with flour in a bowl and combine the crumbs and coconut together in a separate bowl.
Dip prawns into egg. Then the flour… shake off excess. Dip back into the egg, then coat with the crumb/coconut mixture.
*Option 1: place on a parchment lined sheet. Spray lightly with oil and bake for about 12 minutes at 400 degrees. Flip over and bake for about another 5 more until slightly browned and crispy. (I baked the ones in the picture above)
*Option 2: Heat oil in a large pan on medium high heat. Place prawns in hot oil and fry until browned on each side. Few minutes…. keep an eye on them.
