Coconut Shrimp

Now that the warmer weather is coming back, I thought I would share my recipe for coconut shrimp. I made this a while back and this time actually wrote down what it is I did. This recipe is quick and really easy to make.

I remember we had this on a really nice day that we spent on the patio with my mom, she and my grandmas are the reason that my sister and I have gained such a love for cooking- they are the best cooks I know!

We got to share a lazy day outside, and to me it really doesn’t get much better than that!

Dip the shrimp in the flour, shaking off any excess, then dip into the egg, followed by the coconut.

Spray a non-stick baking sheet with cooking spray and then lay the shrimp down and spray the top of the shrimp a bit more

I also made a sauce for the shrimp which consisted of apricot preserves with some sweet Thai chili sauce you can play around with the mixture to get the taste you prefer. (you could also use red pepper flakes to add some heat)
