Instructions
Prepare the Batter:
  1. In medium size bowl, combine the egg, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, beer, and baking powder.
  2. In a small bowl, place 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour; in a separate bowl, place the flaked coconut.
Coat the Shrimp:
  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. Hold shrimp by tail; dredge in the flour, shaking off excess. Dip into the prepared egg and beer batter; allow the excess to drip off. Immediately dip the shrimp in the flaked coconut and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Place the tray with shrimp in the freezer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a heavy deep skillet or a deep fryer, heat oil to 350° F.
  4. Fry the shrimp in batches: cook about 2 to 3 minutes, turning only once, until golden brown on both sides. Remove shrimp and place on paper towels to drain. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
Recipe Notes

Tips:

Halfway through the chilling time, remove the tray from freezer; gently mold the batter around each of the coated shrimp. This will help ensure that it sticks to the shrimp when it's frying.

Serve with cocktail sauce or an Asian sweet chili sauce.

 

* You can use another size shrimp, but the larger the shrimp, the longer they'll need to cook. Coconut burns easily, so be sure to keep a very close on them and turn as soon as they are a nice golden brown.
