Coconut Honey Shrimp is a delicious and flavorful seafood dish that combines the sweetness of honey with the tropical taste of coconut. It's typically made using large shrimp coated in a crispy coconut breading and then drizzled with a Coconut Infused Honey glaze. This dish is often served as an appetizer or a main course and pairs well with various dipping sauces.
Here's a simple recipe for making Coconut Honey Shrimp at home:
- 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
- 3 large eggs, beaten
- Vegetable oil, for frying
For the honey glaze:
- 1/4 cup Coconut Infused Honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 5 tablespoon Lime Infused Honey
- 2 teaspoon Garlic Infused Honey
- 2 teaspoon Ginger Infused Honey
- In a shallow dish, mix the all-purpose flour, salt, and black pepper together.
- Place the sweetened shredded coconut in another shallow dish.
- Dip each shrimp into the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Then dip it into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off.
- Next, coat the shrimp in the shredded coconut, pressing the coconut gently onto the shrimp to adhere.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan or deep fryer to 350°F (175°C).
- Fry the coated shrimp in batches for about 2-3 minutes per side or until the coconut coating is golden brown and crispy. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan.
- Remove the fried shrimp from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
- In a small saucepan, combine all the honey and soy sauce. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally until the glaze is warmed through and slightly thickened.
- Drizzle the honey glaze over the coconut shrimp or serve it on the side for dipping.
- Serve the Coconut Honey Shrimp hot and enjoy!
You can garnish the dish with some fresh chopped cilantro or green onions for added freshness and color. Also, feel free to adjust the sweetness or spiciness of the honey glaze according to your taste preferences. Enjoy this delightful and flavorful dish with your family and friends.
