Ingredients
  

  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 3/4 cup whole raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Sweet chili sauce, optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • In a shallow dish like a pie plate, whisk the egg.
  • In a food processor, grind the coconut and almonds. In another shallow dish, combine the ground coconut and almonds with the bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Dip each shrimp in the egg mixture, covering both sides. Then place the shrimp into the breaded mixture, thoroughly coating all sides of the shrimp. Lay the shrimp on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 7 minutes, or until shrimp are cooked through and golden brown.
  • Serve with sweet chili sauce for dipping (optional).

Notes

Chef’s Notes:
  • If there is a nut allergy in the family, you can eliminate the almonds from the recipe and just use extra coconut. Another option is to use sunflower seeds in place of the almonds.
  • If you have any leftovers, you can cut the shrimp into small pieces and add it to a colorful salad for lunch the next day.

We (Lesley and Ann) first met years ago while training for Ironman Wisconsin. Our paths crossed again at Georgia State University while studying to become registered dietitian nutritionists. Over the years, our paths kept crossing and we soon discovered that we shared a love for menu planning. This blossomed into My Menu Pal where we help the food industry up their nutrition game to become their customer's nutrition hero.
