Amazing! We managed to get our oil too hot and burn the first two so we switched oil, cooled the pan, and improvised. We fried until almost done then out of the oil, onto a cookie sheet, and into the oven for a bit. They still had that fried taste without the greasy texture. Very fabulous, thanks!!

I made this tonight.......it was really very good.....but I used the baking method, and the shrimp were rather bland looking. The edges of the coconut were almost burned and the rest of it stayed white. It just didn't have the color of fried shrimp that I expected. I did spray it with olive oil before baking, but it never got a good color. I certainly will try this again.......the shrimp were really good, but the next time I think I will fry them. I will review again when I do, although I don't think the recipe is the problem.......just that we are so used to eating shrimp fried and the color was very different. Also, the cayenne at first seemed not to be there, but after the first one, the flavor started building up and they had more spice than I expected. Very easy and like I said, I'll make these again.

Great coconut shrimp! Great directions. I baked the shrimp and served them with Coconut Lime Rice. Great dinner! Made for ZWT 5.

Delicious! Was very surprised how yummy this turned out to be. Since I only had shredded coconut, that's what I used and they had a great texture not to mention looked verey pretty :) Also, with 15 large shrimp there were some egg whites left over, next time I will use 2. Can't wait to cook again, keeper!

We absolutely loved this dish! I baked them and they couldn't have turned out better. Served with Thai sweet-sour (and spicy) sauce! Thanks Hope for sharing!

Fantastic recipe, I did half baked and half fried. My picky boyfriend loves O'Charley's coconut shrimp and said these were equally as good!! I used a tropical chipotle salsa for dipping.

These were so yummy! Frying is really the best way to go..I rarely fry anything so when I do it's a treat. I agree, though, that a sauce would enhance it, but I loved them alone, also!

Great taste. Hubby and me really liked it. We baked them, but would make a dip sauce with it next time. Thanks for posting!
