Baked Coconut Shrimp Recipe

Coconut is one of my absolute favorite foods. I love adding it to smoothies, pudding, yogurt, etc. One of my favorite things to have coconut on is shrimp! I’ve always loved coconut shrimp. It’s a really light dish that tastes amazing. I never thought of making it myself until I saw a recipe on Pinterest. It’s actually super easy to make too! So let’s get into the delicious recipe!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 pound Large Shrimp – I used precooked shrimp with no tails
  • 1 cup Coconut Flakes – I used organic
  • 1/2 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour – yes I’m aware it’s upside it’s because it’s in a ziploc bag lol
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • pinch of Salt and Pepper
  • Not Shown: 3 Bowls to separate ingredients, and a Cookie Sheet with nonstick Reynolds Wrap.

What To Do:

  1. If needed, take the tails off your shrimp.
  2. Not Shown: Preheat oven to 425F. If needed, grease your cookie sheet (I used nonstick Reynolds Wrap so I skipped that).
  3. In the first bowl, combine 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, your salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Crack 2 eggs into the second bowl, beat and set aside.
  5. In the last bowl, combine 1 cup of flaked coconut and 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs and set aside.
  6. Dip the shrimp (one by one), into the flour, then the egg, and lastly coat with the coconut and breadcrumb mixture. (Make sure shrimp is completely covered)
  7. Place shrimp onto a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, making sure to turn your shrimp over at the halfway time.

See how easy it is to make these! This recipe doesn’t call for a sauce, but my family wanted one so they added Duck Sauce.

This recipe is so delicious, light and airy. It’s super easy to make too, as you can see. I hope you enjoyed this recipe post and if you recreate it let me know through social media!
