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


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.


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!
