I made baked coconut shrimp as a mid-day snack. This is definitely a healthier alternative to frying; not to mention you can make this baked coconut shrimp right in your toaster oven fairly quickly. You can probably fit a dozen large shrimp in a toaster oven. But you can definitely make a larger batch in the oven as appetizers to serve to guests. It's simple, mess free, quick and delicious!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 to 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 1-2 people
- 1/2 lb large shrimp
- 1 egg
- 1/4 sweetened coconut flakes
- 1/4 Panko bread crumbs
- 1/4 all purpose flour
- Dash of black pepper
- olive oil
- I bought the shrimp already with the shell off, but the tails kept on. I washed and deveined, and slit to butterflied the shrimp. Allow shrimp to pat dry on paper towel.
- Prep your dipping station. You will need 3 bowls. The first bowl will be the flour and dash of pepper or any seasoning of your choice. The second bowl will be beaten egg. The last bowl is the panko breadcrumbs and sweetened (or you can use unsweetened) coconut flakes mixed together.
- Now it is time to dip each shrimp in the flour and black pepper, egg, and then coconut flakes and breadcrumbs. Repeat until you are finished.
- Line foil on a toaster sheet pan with thin layer of olive oil. Place breaded shrimp on lined pan.
- Bake at 450 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, or until ready.
Optional: I served with romaine lettuce and side of Trader Joe's Sweet Chili Sauce (this sauce was only $1.49 - totally delicious and can be paired with a lot of other Asian dishes but you can opt to make your own dipping sauce or eat by itself.)

This looks delish! You can also use warmed pina colada yogurt with some coconut mixed in, too.

Do you turn over the shrimp to bake the other side?
We enjoy fresh caught shrimp here in Savannah & this will be a favorite way to make them. Thanks

I do just to double check, but you don't necessarily have to because there is oil lined so its cooked also. :)
Fresh shrimp is the best! I hope you enjoy.
