Coconut Shrimp with the Best Dipping Sauce

Coconut Shrimp with the Best Dipping Sauce
  • Coconut Shrimp:
  • 1 pound large shrimp (21-25 per pound), peeled and deveined, tails left on
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 8 tablespoons light olive oil, or any high-heat cooking oil
  • Reynolds® Parchment Paper
  • Apricot Sweet Chili Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves or apricot fruit spread


  1. Rinse shrimp in cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Set up 3 shallow bowls. In the first, stir together 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. In the second, add eggs and lightly beat with a fork. In the third, combine 1 1/2 cups coconut flakes and 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs.
  3. Dredge shrimp in flour, dip in beaten egg and then finally dip in coconut crumb mixture using your hands to press the mixture onto the shrimp. Transfer to a Reynolds(R) Parchment Paper lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining shrimp. Once all of the shrimp are breaded, saute right away.
  4. Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add enough oil to generously cover the bottom. Once oil is hot, add shrimp and saute 2 to 3 minutes, flip and saute another 2 minutes until golden brown on both sides and shrimp is firm and pink. Cook in batches and don't overcrowd the pan.
  5. Stir together the sweet chili sauce and apricot preserves and serve with coconut shrimp.
