Ingredients

  • 1lb shrimp (peeled, deveined)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup coconut oil

Directions

Step 1 Add coconut flour, whisked eggs and shredded coconut to three separate dishes.
Step 2 Take your shrimp and dredge them, that is: coat in coconut flour first, then the egg wash and finally, coat well in the shredded coconut.
Step 3 Heat coconut oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.
Step 4 Once the pan is hot, add shrimp and cook until flesh is opaque and shredded coconut is golden brown and delicious.

Note

I want to serve this dish with a sweet and sour sauce, but I haven't developed one yet. If you have any ideas or know of a delicious sauce, please share it with us!

    I made a sauce by chopping fresh pineapple in the food processor and adding coconut milk, chill for about 30 mins! Just like Red Lobster sauce! The shrimp needed a little salt :)

    I made a sauce in the blender with frozen pineapple, a little jalapeno, one drop of honey, and some nam pla (fish sauce). Fantastic

    I'm going to make these tonight, I don't have coconut flour, but I do have gluten free flour that will work. Where can I buy coconut flour that isn't outrageously expensive?
