Crunchy Coconut Shrimp, are battered, fried large shrimp, served with a sweet chili-lime dipping sauce! They're a delicious main course or appetizer!
Before you cook the shrimp, line a baking sheet with several thicknesses of paper towels (to drain the shrimp once cooked). Spread the coconut out onto a plate. Line up the batter bowl, then the plate of coconut and place them near the pan with the hot oil.
Carefully put the shrimp into the 375 degree oil (make sure the oil is at temperature before adding, to ensure a good crunch and browning). Work in batches, cooking 4-5 shrimp at a time. Deep-fry the shrimp about 2- 1/2 minutes (turning halfway through cooking time). Remove the golden brown colored, cooked shrimp to the paper-towel lined baking sheet to drain. **Before you add the next batch of shrimp to the oil, make sure the oil is back to temperature! (this is important!). Serve shrimp hot, with dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy!
