  1. Mix batter ingredients (first 5 ingredients) until well blended; some lumps in your batter are okay.

  2. Dip shrimp, one at a time in the batter, roll in coconut to coat, and place on wax paper.

  3. Heat 1/4-inch of oil in skillet. (To test is oil is hot enough for frying, take a chunk of bread and place it in the oil; if it crisps easily, it's ready).

  4. Fry shrimp 7-8 at a time for 1 minute on each side until golden brown.

  5. Drain on paper towels.

  6. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

  7. TIP: further chop the coconut so it is fine. This prevents clumping. ?
