Coconut Baked Shrimp

posted by 7 months ago


1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/3 cup cornstarch

1 tsp salt

¾ tsp cayenne pepper

2 cups flaked sweetened coconut

3 egg whites, beaten until foamy


Preheat an oven to 400° F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Rinse and pat dry shrimp with paper towels. Mix cornstarch, salt, and cayenne pepper in a shallow bowl; pour coconut flakes in a separate shallow bowl. Working with one shrimp at a time, dredge it in the cornstarch mixture, then dip it in the egg white, and roll it in the coconut, making sure to coat the shrimp well. Place on the prepared baking sheet, and repeat with the remaining shrimp. Bake the shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center and the coconut is browned, 15 to 20 minutes, flipping the shrimp halfway through. (Serves: 4)
