Coconut Shrimp

As simple as making Coconut Shrimp is I have made Cajun shrimp, Shrimp Scampi , Steamed shrimp but I have never made Coconut Shrimp. I have eaten coconut shrimp, but from the “coconut shrimp” I have eaten the shrimp was always sweet.I grabbed some flaked coconut, made a flour batter with flour, water, and a little spice and deep-fried the Shrimp for 2 minutes and there I have it ” Coconut Shrimp .Not to mention I got all the flaked coconut and flour mix all nice and gooey all over my hands.
After making my “coconut shrimp ” recipe I must say the coconut shrimp were just right. The fried shrimps weren’t too sweet and the shrimps were a great balance of savory& sweet . A great mix with a nice crunch. The shrimp was a thumbs up in my house. I’ll be sure to make extras next time around.

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup beer/water
