- In another bowl place your eggs that have been beaten.
- Dredge your shrimp in flour and shake.
- Then dredge your shrimp in the egg- shaking off excess.
- Dredge your shrimp in the coconut and breadcrumb mixture.
- Lay out your shrimp on a foil lined baking sheet so the edges dont touch until ready to fry.
- 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.
- Fry your shrimp till golden brown. It should only take about a minute or so to cook the shrimp. They cook fast.
- Now Lets make our Dipping Sauce.
- In a bowl Place your orange marmalade, Rice Vinegar and red pepper. Stir well. Its ready.
