  2. Dip the shrimp into the flour, then the eggs, and then dredge the shrimp into the coconut mixing, pressing gently to adhere a generous amount of coconut on each shrimp. Set the coated shrimp aside on a plate while coating the remaining shrimp.

  3. Add enough oil to cover the bottom of a large skillet on medium heat. Fry the coconut shrimp in batches – do not crowd them in the pan.

  4. Flip after 2 minutes and fry the other side for 2 minutes or until golden brown.

  6. Sprinkle with a little chopped cilantro (optional) and serve. Leftover coconut shrimp keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
