    Coconut Shrimp

    Let me share my favorite coconut shrimp recipe.
    You will need some bourbon, preferably drank from a mason jar



    Get 20 large shrimps, butterfly them and wet brine (basic brine) for 30 minutes. This gives them that POP texture.
    While shrimps are brining go ahead and get 1 cup AP flour, to that add about a teaspoon of paprika (this brings out the shrimp in shrimps), some chipottle pepper and white pepper to taste. put that mess in a large bowl with a cover or a gallon size ziploc bag.

    In another bowl, beat 2 eggs with about a tablespoon of coconut cream (better) or water. set that aside.


    In a third bowl mix about a cup of panko bread crumbs and about a cup and a half of shredded coconut. Sweet or unsweetened works. I mix the two.

    Here's how your work station will be set up. You'll start with flour mixture, then agg bowl, Panko bowl and lastly a cooling rack set on a baking sheet.



    Dry your shrimp as much as possible and damp them in the flour mixture and shake em to coat.
    Shake off excess flour and dip in egg mixture then press em in the panko/ coconut mixture. You want to press so that the mess adheres to the shrimp. Move them to the cooling rack. From here you can leave them in the refrigerator until you're ready to cook.



    Heat about an inch and a half of peanut oil in a cast iron skillet or dutch oven to 350 degrees and fry shrimp until golden brown. As soon as you take them out give them a squeeze of lemon juice and serve.

    I serve them with a simple green salad and dipping sauce of orange marmalade, Thai sweet chili and lemon juice.





    My apologies, I'm not good at writing or following recipes. But if you see something wacky please point it out.

        Ernest ,
        Greetings,

        I am new around here but just found your recipe for the coconut shrimp. These look great! Great pix, always helps and motivates! It is my wife's favorite food so I want to make it for her this weekend. I am however having a hard time identifying a "basic brine" recipe applicable to shrimp (lots of info, some conflicting about brines as I am sure you know). Could you please share your brine recipe for the shrimp?

        Thanks

            Ozzie basic brine is quarter cup of kosher salt to a quart of water. That's all. Nothing fancy in it.
            comes to something like one part kosher salt to 16 parts water.

              I wish I could like coconut shrimp since I LOVE both shrimp and coconut but I've found that combo not to my liking for some reason.

              Maybe I'll just eat your pics.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              the good one grill

              The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

              Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.

              Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

              masterbuilt gas smoker

              Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
