Method

Combine flour, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl.

Beat the eggs in another bowl and put coconut in the third bowl.

Dip the shrimp into the flour, then the eggs, and then dredge the shrimp into the coconut.

Add enough oil to cover the bottom of a large skillet over medium heat.

Fry the coconut shrimp in batches - do not crowd them in the pan.

Flip after 2 minutes and fry the other side for 2 minutes or until golden brown.

Place the finished coconut shrimp on a plate lined with a paper towel as you fry the rest.

Serve with your favorite sweet chili sauce.
