How to Make Coconut Shrimp with Sweet & Sour Orange Sauce


  1. Prepare shrimp: Place flour in a medium bowl. Whisk pancake mix, salt and 1 cup water in another bowl to form a smooth batter. Place coconut in another bowl.
  2. Dredge 1 shrimp at a time in flour, shake off excess, hold shrimp by tail, dip into batter, allow excess to drip off and make a well in coconut and drop in batter coated shrimp and cover with coconut press to adhere. Repeat... use a little extra water if batter thickens.
  3. Sauce: Mix all ingredients together, set aside and serve with shrimp.
  4. I place my shrimp on wax paper and freeze before I fry them and the coconut adheres and just fry directly from the freezer in batches. Do not crowd the shrimp when frying. Place on baking sheet in a warm oven while frying all the shrimp. Serve. Enjoy.
