Baked Coconut Shrimp




Let’s be honest.  If a recipe is usually fried, the baked version is probably not going to be as good.  But, I don’t own an air fryer, don’t like frying on the stovetop because of the mess and really wanted to make my daughter Coconut Shrimp since it was too cold on her recent visit to order some sitting outside over looking the water.

This recipe has been saved, but not tried, for quite some time and I think it may be a keeper.  Like I said, not as good as a fried version, but perfectly good to enjoy at home for a Florida style appetizer.

I followed the recipe with one change that I would not do again. I used already peeled and cooked shrimp and I think it needs the raw shrimp for the corn starch to adhere to better.  The coconut did brown up nicely in the oven, so no worries there.



If you need a little tropical sunshine in the middle of winter, give this recipe a try.  Best served with a pina colada pool side :-)

Happy Friday!
