This Caribbean-inspired Coffee Coconut Shrimp is sweet and crispy and simple to make.
  • ½ lb. shrimp, peeled & deveined leaving tail
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¼ cup strong coffee
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup sweet shredded coconut
  • 6 Tablespoons coconut oil
  1. In a dish, combine the shredded coconut and bread crumbs.
  2. In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, milk, coffee, and coconut milk until smooth.
  3. Dip the shrimp into the wet mixture then into the breading and coconut mixture until covered. Set each coated shrimp aside until all are finished.
  4. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, place the shrimp in one layer into the pan. You may need to do a couple batches. Cook about 2 minutes per side until browned and crispy and cooked through. Place on a paper towel-covered plate until ready to serve.
  5. (Optional) Serve over jasmine rice with vegetables and traditional coconut shrimp sauce with a cup of coffee to drink.
There will be a lot of batter left over. If you wish, you can split the batter recipe in half. The only reason I didn't was because I did not want to make the milk measurements an odd amount.
