Directions

  1. Take your deveined and peeled shrimp and Butterfly them. (You do this by slicing the back of the shrimp and spreading it like a butterfly). Set Aside
  2. In a bowl Combine your breadcrumbs, coconut, salt and pepper. Mix well
  3. In another Bowl place your flour in it and set aside
  4. In another bowl place your eggs that have been beaten.
  5. Dredge your shrimp in flour and shake.
  6. Then dredge your shrimp in the egg- shaking off excess.
  7. Dredge your shrimp in the coconut and breadcrumb mixture.
  8. Lay out your shrimp on a foil lined baking sheet so the edges dont touch until ready to fry.
  9. Heat up your oil. I use a fryer but you can use a medium size pan filled with vegetable oil. If you are not using a fryer- make sure your oil is cracking hot. You do this by splashing a drop of water in the oil and if it crackles the oil is ready.
  10. Fry your shrimp till golden brown. It should only take about a minute or so to cook the shrimp. They cook fast.
  11. Now Lets make our Dipping Sauce.
  12. In a bowl Place your orange marmalade, Rice Vinegar and red pepper. Stir well. Its ready.
  13. Enjoy
