    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Plan ahead the battered shrimp needs to be refrigerated for a minimum of 5 hours or up to 24 hours before frying, make certain not to use longer shreds of coconut or they will not stick and please use a good-quality coconut for the shrimp, Mounds brand works well for this purchase uncooked shrimp with tails left on leave the tail on the shrimp!

      Another delicious recipe, Kittencal! I have never refrigerated the shrimp after battering them, I usually just fry them right up. I think this makes for a thicker batter. I also tried baking a few of them, just to see what the difference would be ... I didn't care for this method. It took quite a while, the batter didn't seem cooked all the way and the coconut wasn't toasting very well. Overall, it was a hit! Thank you :)
