Coconut shrimp FINAL

Make sure to repin this recipe

You will not believe how easy this recipe is — I have a quick hack I actually used pre-cooked shrimp ( picked it up in the frozen section ) now this was not my original plan – after a super long day of shopping I did not want to stop at one more store to pick up shrimp ( please tell me that you have days like that)

The frozen shrimp worked really well – and it was not too expensive – I might do it again ( maybe )

I bought was dipping sauce ( I used a sweet chili sauce) but you can use anything you want

I also added a little fresh parsley for a little pop of color.

Total side note – I am in love with my new plate – it is a hand made plate ( it is a little wonky but in the best way possible)

Coconut shrimp 2

Sadly I do not really know how to make this recipe gluten – free which is kinda a bummer – but my whole family enjoyed it as a big snack during the afternoon.

You can premake the panko mixture and have that on hand – so this recipe is easily a 15 minute recipe which I love!
