Making Keto Coconut Shrimp
These coconut shrimp can be made in just a few steps.
Let's go over each one in detail.
Step #1. Get Your Shrimp Ready
We used fresh large-sized shrimp from our local seafood shrimp.
Then we peeled, de-veined, and washed the shrimp and placed a bowl.
Step #2. Set Up Your Dredging Station
In one bowl, whisk the batter ingredients together until fully combined.
Step #3. Coat Your Shrimp in the Batter
One at a time, dip each individual shrimp into the batter.
Be sure to shake off any extra batter.
Step #4. Cover Your Shrimp in Coconut
Next, add the batter-covered shrimp into the coconut "breading" mixture.
Once again, shake off any excess breading. We want to be able to see those cute little shrimp shapes.
Carefully, place your fully coated shrimp on a plate.
Step #4. Fry Your Shrimp
Once to temperature, carefully place the shrimp in the oil.
Make sure not to put no more than 8 in at a time as to not reduce temperature.
Cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each . Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to soak up any extra oil.
Step #5. Make the Dipping Sauce
Don't forget to make the amazing dipping sauce.
All you need to do is mix all the ingredients into a bowl.
Serve this sauce in a bowl with your fried keto coconut shrimp.
Quick Shrimp Tips
Before you get started, here are some quick tips:
- Shrimp should have a mild or even salty smell. If your shrimp either raw or cooked smell “fishy” or have an ammonia-like odor, they are likely spoiled and unsafe to consume.
- Make sure your cooked shrimp are firm in texture and white with a slight red or pink tint.
- Don't overcook your shrimp!! Just a few minutes (4-5 to be exact) are all you need.
