Coconut Fried Shrimp with Dipping Sauce

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 lb medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • peanut oil, for frying

Preparation

Dipping Sauce:

 

Add red pepper flakes, vinegar and marmalade to a pot on a low temperature. Heat for 10 minutes, making sure you stir ingredients every few minutes. In a large, heavy pot, heat 2-inches of the peanut oil to 325°.

 

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the water and whisk until smooth. Let the batter stand for 15 minutes.

 

In a wide, shallow bowl, toss the coconut and breadcrumbs together.

 

Put the shrimp into the batter. Remove the shrimp, 1 at a time, and dredge in the coconut mixture, pressing to help the coconut adhere. Fry the shrimp in batches in the hot oil for 1 to 2 minutes or until brown. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the shrimp to a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Serve the shrimp with the dipping sauce.
