Coconut and Panko Fried Shrimp Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2 - 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound shrimp, deveined and butterflied
  • 1 cup tempura flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 3 cups oil for frying
How to cook Coconut and Panko Fried Shrimp:
  • Devein and butterfly shrimp. Basically, that means slitting both sides of the shrimp, one side should have the poop tract and the other side would butterfly the shrimp in half.
  • Pour tempura flour in a bowl, whisk one egg into another bowl and combine panko crumbs with coconut flakes on a plate.
  • Dredge shrimp in tempura flour. Shake off excess flour, coat with egg mixture. Shake off excess egg, coat in panko/coconut mixture, set aside.
  • Halfway through this process, heat oil on medium high on your stove. Use a small pot deep enough so the shrimp are fully covered in oil, assuming you don’t own a deep fryer. If your stove knob goes up to 10, set it to 8.
  • Place 4-5 shrimp in at a time. Too many will cause the oil to either bubble over or the oil temp to go down, something bad always happens when I do too much too fast.
  • When shrimp is golden brown, use tongs or wire mesh to scoop up onto a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  • Serve the Coconut and Panko Fried Shrimp hot.
  • Goes well with a side salad.
  • Enjoy!

Note(s):

The Coconut and Panko Fried Shrimp recipe was pretty easy but in order to get that crispy breaded coating you need to follow the steps. You will need a bowl of tempura flour (or regular flour), a bowl with one whisked egg, and a plate with a mixture of coconut flakes and panko breadcrumbs. You can serve it as a side dish, main dish, appetizer, or something.
