Baked Coconut Shrimp

The minute I saw this recipe in Clean Eating Magazine, I knew I wanted to make it soon!  My mouth was watering just checking out the pictures and it looked like a fresh idea to our meal rotation that wasn’t too complicated.  Perfect for a quiet night in after a long holiday weekend!

Which means I made it Monday night.  I did skimp on the homemade dip though and just picked one up at the store.

I was a huge fan of this recipe before I even put it into the oven.  Three bowls, four ingredients, and it all reminded me of a fun art project.

Don’t these guys look tasty?  The whole time, I kept thinking about what else can I dip into coconut/panko and bake?

I would suggest baking them slightly longer than suggested to get your shrimp EXTRA crispy!

In less than 20 minutes, dinner was served!

And I think that you will enjoy this recipe too!

Olive oil cooking spray

2/3 cup whole wheat flour

    • I’m not a huge fan of coconut either (which the BOY pointed out when he was surprised by my dinner choice). I think coconut ‘fried’ anything is good and I don’t mind those samoa girl scout cookies : ) Thanks for the comment. Have a great weekend!
