First and foremost, If you have raw shrimp that you need to peel you will also need to devein them.
To devein them make a slit down the back of the shrimp and remove the dark vein.
First, in a bowl combine shredded coconut, cassava flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder.
In a separate bowl combine beaten coconut milk and lemon juice (let sit 5 minutes).
Next beat eggs into the coconut milk with lemon juice.
Working in batches place 5-8 shrimp into the buttermilk mixture, once shrimp is coated dip into the flour mixture.
Directions For Frying:
You can fry up on the stovetop in a frying pan or use a wok. U
Using wax paper line a half sheet pan to place coated shrimp on and line a second cookie sheet for the cooked shrimp.
I used a Wok because I feel it takes less oil.
Place 6 – 10 shrimp in a wok at a time.
Fry shrimp up approximately 2 minutes per side.
Do not overload the wok.
Once all the shrimp is cooked allow to cool slightly.
