Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil and mist with cooking spray.

To first bowl, add flour; to second bowl, add eggs and beat lightly; to third bowl, add panko, coconut, salt and pepper and stir to combine.

Really enjoyed this shrimp recipe! Loved that they were baked instead of fried. I wanted my breading a bit more crisp, so I turned the broiler on at the very end. The coconut flavor was perfect. The sauce was a great accompaniment. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe!

Wow, I really loved the shrimp prepared this way Teresa. So awesome. Great flavor, tender shrimp, and a decadent apricot lime sauce, which I drizzled over the shrimp. It made for a wonderful meal served with Thai Coconut Rice. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, which has gone into my favorites cookbook for 2016. Kudos to you. Made FYC Tag Game.

This was a really good recipe for coconut shrimp and sauce. I loved the crispiness of the shrimp coating and the nice coconut flavor. The sauce was good, but I think I would cut the fish sauce next time. I chose to turn the broiler on for the last minute to two so the shrimp coating would get crispier. Thank you for a fun and healthy recipe!
