Fried Coconut Shrimp

fried coconut shrimp recipe

This tasty Fried Coconut Shrimp recipe is delicious. I love shrimp but it is so flavorless on its own. There is nothing like a little coconut to give it some flavor. The coconut shrimp is both delicious and refreshing. I feel like I’m on a tropical island on the beach by the ocean when I take a bite of one of these shrimps. Add a slice of lemon on the side and sprinkle the lemon  juices on the shrimp for a little extra zest. And don’t forget to include a nice cool dipping sauce like a nice Remoulade Sauce! That type of dipping sauce is one of my favorites to use with shrimp.

  • 1 ¼ cups of all purpose flour

Remoulade Sauce

I use this remoulade sauce a lot whenever I eat shrimp. I love it! It is easy to make too.

Cooking time: 1 hour
Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions, white and green parts
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Simply whisk all of the ingredients together in a large bowl then place in the refrigerator to sit for 1 hour. You can also eat it right away without refrigerating the dipping sauce but I prefer to chill my sauce first.
