Coconut Shrimp with Almond Sriracha Dipping Sauce

Teresa Jacobson


I haven't made coconut shrimp in years and I struggled to remember what went into the batter. I started throwing stuff together and this came out better than I remember. The sauce is the perfect pairing to the crunchy shrimp.

How to Make Coconut Shrimp with Almond Sriracha Dipping Sauce


  1. Place the four ingredients for the dipping sauce in a bowl and stir well to combine; set aside.
  2. In a separate dish, combine the 1/2 c. flour, coconut flour, corn meal, baking soda, salt, pepper, and pepper flakes. Stir well to combine. Add one whole can and the partial can of coconut milk; stir well. Batter may be thick.
  3. In two separate dishes, place the flour in one and coconut in the other.
