Directions

  1. Beat flour, beer, egg, and salt in a bowl with an electric mixer on low until batter is smooth. Spread coconut flakes in a shallow dish.
  2. Dip shrimp into beer batter, shaking off excess, then press into coconut. Place shrimp onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking, 3 to 4 minutes. Fry about a third of the shrimp in the hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Allow shrimp to drain on a wire rack set over paper towels. Repeat with remaining shrimp.

Great recipe! We are gluten-free so I replaced the all purpose flour with brown rice flour.

This was a hit! I made it exactly as written and it was yummy. It was wonderful served with a sweet and sour sauce. My family is already requesting I make it again.
