Twice-Cooked Coconut Shrimp
July 16, 2009

SECRET TO COCONUT STICKING which I'm surprised hasn't been mentioned: You have to chill the shrimp for at least 30 min. as recommended in another coconut shrimp recipe on this site! after you take it out of fridge, use your fingers to mold/glue on the coconut to the shrimp after it's been in the fridge for at least 15 minutes (but put back in fridge so it can continue to meld together). Just press down on each shrimp that is covered with coconut & the batter that has had time to meld onto the coconut will catch any lose flakes. I do this each time and never have any problems. Coconut burns easily, so I only cook about a small batch at a time so I can monitor their progress and flip faster. Also have paper towels ready after you fry to soak up the excess oil! This was very good, but don't get the point in heating your oven up for 5 min when the frying has already finished them off.
