Coconut Fried Shrimp

From Florida Sport Fishing


    2 pounds, peeled and deveined, uncooked shrimp
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 ½ cups milk
    1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon curry
    ½ teaspoon salt
    2 cups shredded coconut
    oil for deep frying


Thaw shrimp if frozen, rinse and set aside to drain. Measure ½ cup of flour and set aside. Combine remaining 1 ½ cups flour, milk, baking powder, curry and salt, mix well. Place reserved flour and shredded coconut in separate shallow pans. Dredge shrimp in flour, dip in batter, then roll in coconut. Deep fry in hot oil at 350 F, until coconut is golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper, then transfer to warm tray. Serve hot with sweet and sour sauce.
Publisher's Note: We like a mango chutney with these too. This is very similar to the ones served at Outback.

Yield: 6 servings ~ Florida Sport Fishing
