Dom's Coconut Shrimp
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 pound uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 egg, beaten
- oil for frying
- lemon wedges
- cocktail sauce
Instructions:In a large bowl, combine breadcrumbs and coconut. Dip shrimp into beaten
egg and then into breadcrumb/coconut mixture. Be sure to press the shrimp
firmly to make the coating adhere to shrimp. Chill shrimp for at least 15
minutes so coating sticks.
Heat oil in a large saucepan until hot. Add shrimp and cook until golden.
Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels.
Serve with lemon wedges and a zesty cocktail sauce.
