Coconut Fried Shrimp

I made this menu just because I wanted to finish up the sweet coconut flakes in my fridge. It is a left over from baking and had been sitting there like forever. This is very simple and almost no fail menu, the shrimp itself is very tasty so you will not really mess it, even with basic salt and pepper seasoning this will still be great.

1. Prepare 2 C big shrimps, peel off the shell. Mine is like 4″ – 5″ long individually, I left the tail and half part of the head. Marinate with 2 tbs of lemon juice for 5 minutes. Ground 2 cloves of garlic, 2 shallots, 2 candlenuts, 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tbs coriander, mix with 1 beaten egg white.

    This entree loses nothing if the coconut is unsweetened, right? There is plenty of sugar in coconut, and I would get the same mouth-feel from natural. Thanks for posting this, it will make it into my blog, now.

  3. Should be fine… Thanks for visiting!
