Ingredients

To make the shrimp

  • 1 lb shrimp, raw and peeled
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut, finely shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

To make the salsa

  • 1 cup pineapple, chopped
  • 1 cup mango chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/3 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • 3/4 cup sweet peppers, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped or parsley chopped

Instructions

  1. Chop the pineapple, mango, onion, jalapeƱo, peppers and cilantro into small pieces.
  2. Add to a large bowl and toss with salt and lime juice. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Thaw shrimp if necessary and blot dry with a paper towel.
  4. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs.
  5. In another shallow bowl add the salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and shredded coconut. Mix well.
  6. Hold each shrimp by the tail and dip into the eggs and then the coconut mixture and then place on a plate. Continue with all the shrimp. Make sure the shrimp is well coated with the coconut.
  7. In the meantime add your coconut oil to a small to medium skillet and heat to medium high.
  8. Add the shrimp one by one, working in batches. When they start browning on the bottom, flip and brown the other side. This should only take a few minutes per side. Adjust the heat if they are getting too brown or not brown enough.
  9. Place some paper towels on another plate and when the shrimp are done frying, place them on the towels to drain the excess oil.
  10. Serve immediately with the salsa.
