Coconut Shrimp
  • 1cup Don Q Coco rum
  • 2cups Shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1cup Unseasoned bread crumbs
  • Freshly ground pepper and kosher salt
  • 2cups All purpose flour
  • 24 Large shrimp
  • ½cup Vegetable cooking oil
  1. PROCEDURE: In a large bowl, combine coconut and bread crumbs, then season with salt and pepper. Dip the shrimp in Don Q Coco rum, dredge in flour and shake off excess. Next, dip the shrimp thoroughly in egg and coat thoroughly in bread crumb mixture. Lay out shrimp on wax or parchment paper, slightly touching. In a skillet or deep fryer, heat cooking oil to 350º degrees and cook shrimp until golden brown and cooked through – about 3 to 4 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels.
