How to make Deep Fried Coconut Shrimps

Bookmarked this recipe from Tastemade for ages, and finally I had time to try it! Presenting you the deep fried coconut shrimps. Tasty looking shrimps enveloped in the fragrance of coconut. Delicious~

Here's how I made it. I made some adjustments to the recipe.

Ingredients needed

  • 10-12 shrimps
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of beer
  • 1 tablespoon of light soya sauce
  • Pepper
  • Oil
  • 1 cup of breadcrumps/ panko
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut

1. De-vein and butterfly the shrimps.

You can leave the tail tip on for better presentation.

2. Marinade the shrimps in light soya sauce and pepper.

You can change the marination ingredients to a combination of oyster sauce, pepper, cooking sake and/ or light soya sauce.

3. Mix flour, beer and eggs in one bowl. [Bowl A]
4. Mix breadcrumps and shredded coconut in another bowl. [Bowl B]
5. Heat up the oil.

To test that the temperature is right, you can drop a bit of the batter in the oil. If it crisps immediately and floats, it is ready.

6. Coat the shrimps one by one with batter in Bowl A and then with crumbs in Bowl B, then deep fry it in the oil.
7. When it turns golden brown, it is ready to serve.

Surprisingly it stays crispy and fragrant even after an hour or so :)

There you go, hope you enjoy these shrimps as much as I do.
