Tempura Coconut Shrimp & Tangy/Spicy Orange Sauce

Cynthia Wiggins-Wyrick


This was so YUMMY! I have a very professional deep fryer and 375 degrees for the 1st batch was a bit too high, 365 was good and 360 degrees turned out perfect!

For what you pay for a Coconut Shrimp Appetizer at a Restaurant, this was GREAT for the price of the ingredients and is one of my favorite dishes !!!
