Coconut crusted shrimp

08 Jul


These were so good that I am going to make them tomorrow too when I have company over! I havent had much seafood lately so I am going to try a few shrimp and fish dishes this week. Well we are off to a good start!


  • 1 lb of large shrimp
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 cup of almond flour or almond meal
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut oil for frying shrimp

Take your shrimp and cut them lengthwise so they will butterfly when you cook them. Make sure to de-poop them!

Take your eggs and whisk them. Add the garlic powder, salt, and pepper and whisk together. Take the cup of almond meal and coconut and mix together in a separate bowl. Take your shrimp and coat them with the egg spice mixture then coat with the coconut/almond mixture .

Get a saucepan big enough to hold all shrimp at once. Add the coconut oil and heat until very hot. Add the shrimp and cook on each side about 2 minutes each, or until the crust is a light golden brown.

Serve with some type of spicy sweet dipping sauce. I had this pepper jelly I bought from this lady at the farmers market because she was so nice. Never thought I would use it! I just heated it up. I am going to look for a good paleo sauce though to use next time. Also a good mango salad, seems like that would be a good counter part to this dish.

Sooooo good
