Here is a dish that is found on some restaurant menus. The sweetness of the shrimp along with the coconut, makes this a great combination.
2 cups shredded sweetened Coconut
2 cups Bread Crumbs
Creole Seasoning to taste
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
4 large Eggs
24 large Shrimp (16-20 count), peeled and deveined
Preheat fryer to 350.
Combine coconut, bread crumbs and Creole seasoning in a shallow bowl. In a second shallow bowl, place the flour. Beat the eggs in a third bowl. Dredge the shrimp n flour, shake off excess, then dip in the eggs and shake off excess. Coat the shrimp in coconut bread crumbs. Lay shrimp on platter, not touching, until ready to fry. Fry for 3 to 5 minutes and do not overcrowd. Drain on paper towels and serve.
Here is a dipping sauce for the shrimp
1/2 cup Orange marmalade
1 to 2 tablespoons Dark Rum
Combine rum and marmalade in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the mixture thins out and has the consistency of a dipping sauce. Serve warm with shrimp.
