Oven Fried Coconut Shrimp with Thai Pineapple Chili Sauce
Healthier than take-out, these shrimp are baked, not fried…and so much tastier!
1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs. Add the shrimp and toss well to coat.2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Rub 2 baking sheets with oil.3. To a medium-sized bowl, add the coconut, Panko, flour, sesame seeds, paprika, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Stir to combine.4. Remove each shrimp from the egg, and dredge through the crumbs, pressing gently to adhere. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the shrimp have been used. Make sure not to crowd your pan, if necessary use two baking sheets. Lightly brush/drizzle the shrimp with olive oil. Transfer to the oven and bake for 8-12 minutes, until the shrimp is cooked and the breading crisp. 5. Meanwhile, make the chili sauce by combining all the ingredients in a bowl.6. Serve the shrimp topped with Thai basil, limes, and the pineapple chili sauce for dipping. Add creamy honey mustard or aioli for a little double-dip action. Enjoy!
