24 medium shrimp, shelled (leaving tails intact), and de-veined
1 egg, beaten
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup Alaskan Summer Ale (or another medium-bodied beer)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups flaked coconut, chopped finer
3 cups peanut oil for frying (has a higher smoking point)
***Tangy Dipping Sauce:
½ cup orange marmalade
¼ cup dijon mustard
¼ cup honey
4 drops sriracha sauce (or tabasco)
In a small bowl, make dipping sauce, and set aside.
|Local Alaskan Summer Ale|
Preheat warming oven to 175 degrees, and place pie plate inside.
While holding shrimp by tail, dredge in flour, and shake off excess. Dip in beer batter; allow excess to drip off. Roll shrimp in finely chopped coconut, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate coated shrimp for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oil in electric skillet to 350 degrees (or in a dutch oven using a cooking thermometer). Cook in batches, so you don’t overcrowd them. Fry shrimp in batches only for a total of 4 minutes; turning once with tongs after 2 minutes. Remove shrimp to drain on a paper towel lined plate. Transfer batches of fried shrimp to warm pie plate in oven. Continue frying shrimp until done.
Serve warm coconut shrimp with the tangy dipping sauce, along with a couple of beers, i.e., local Alaskan Summer Ale ~ Enjoy!
Tip: If using larger prawns, you might consider doubling the recipe.
