Beer Batter Coconut Shrimp & Honey Marmalade Dipping Sauce

Hi everyone so great to be here with you all today!
From my kitchen to yours I am  sharing an AMAZING Coconut Shrimp recipe.
When I began my search for a killer of a Coconut Shrimp recipe I had some ingredients conjured up in my mind that I wanted to use for the batter.
It was important to me to have a light batter that stuck well to the shrimp and did not add any overbearing flavors. My goal was for the taste of the shrimp to shine through with just an appealing hint of coconut flavor and a satisfying crunch.
This recipe came through with flying colors.

I wish that my photos of  the shrimp would have been better. This was our evening meal last Friday night and the light got away from me before I had the chance to snap the end results.
Would telling you that there was not a single shrimp left be proof enough!

Be sure to make the honey marmalade dipping sauce, it is a wonderful medley of sweet and spicy.
I think it would be great with chicken, egg rolls, sausage balls, most fried foods and foods with an Asian influence.
It can be adjusted to your liking by simply increasing or decreasing the ingredients listed below.

I also wanted to let you all know before I get busy with the recipe that I am working on some little cookbooks.
They will be available on the blog in the next couple of months, I am keeping them easy and basic so they will be a great accompaniment to your existing cookbooks.
Now on with the recipes and thank you for joining me today.

Beer Batter Coconut Shrimp ( Adapted From Allrecipes)

prep time: 30 minutes cook time: 30 minutes total time: 1 Hour
This is a tasty and light beer batter that complements the coconut and shrimp. Coconut shrimp can be served as an appetizer or accompanied by a tossed salad for a meal. You will need a deep fat fryer or Fry Daddy for even cooking.

INGREDIENTS:

Frying The Coconut Shrimp
  • 24 medium size cleaned & deveined Shrimp with tails on
  • 3/4 bottle of Belgian Pale Ale Beer
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 4 cups oil
  • Fry Daddy/or fryer of choice

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In medium bowl, combine egg, 3/4 cup flour, beer and baking powder. Place 1/4 cup flour and coconut in two separate bowls. Hold shrimp by tail, and dredge in flour, shaking off excess flour. Dip in egg/beer batter; allow excess to drip off. Roll shrimp in coconut, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) in a deep-fryer. Fry shrimp in batches: cook, turning once, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Using tongs, remove shrimp to paper towels to drain. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
Honey Marmalade Dipping Sauce
  1. 3/4 Cup Marmalade 1/2 cup Honey 1/4 cup Yellow Mustard 1/4 cup Horseradish 4 drops Hot Pepper Sauce
  2. Mix orange marmalade, honey, mustard, horseradish and hot sauce in a bowl. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until serving time.

    1. You won't be dissapointed! I am not a fan of cleaning shrimp so I purchase mine already deveined with the tails on. Cuts down on prep time too.

    1. Totally agree Carole, you can't go wrong with this combination. Chilling them after dipping them in the flour and coconut makes all the difference in the world.
      Robert will be very pleased with this meal.

    1. Penny, these are so good and you know I had forgotten that I even had a Fry Daddy!
      I was going to attempt to pan fry them, but now I know that would have not made them as tasty. About 3 minutes in the fryer and presto!

  9. I am a big fan of shrimp and so is my mom. Adding the coconut makes it so appealing. Looks like a lovely batter too with the beer. The icing on the cake is the lovely sauce. Thanks for sharing dear Jemma. Xo

    1. Thank you dear Linda, they were so good, and I make a shrimp dish a least once a month so I can vouch for the incredible and honest to goodness joy of this recipe.
      Happy Wednesday!

    1. Cindy, I just bet your family would enjoy these so much.
      I think the batter would be a universal one too, equally good on fish.

  12. Printed this out, Jemma. I remember making beer battered shrimp decades ago and remember the great taste. There wouldn't be any left here either! I no longer own a fryer but I'm guessing a black iron skillet will do the job fine?

    1. Dewena,
      I sure do think that they could be fried in a good black iron skillet. I would just make certain I had an adequate amount of oil and you'll be in business!

  13. They look delicious and would be so easy to make gluten free (just sub the flour and beer for gf version). The sauce sounds yummy.

    1. Well, I certainly think that they could be. Dewena is going to try them in a black iron skillet and Lauren is modifying them for a gluten free diet. So many possibilities, I just love it!

  16. This looks great -- and like the dipping sauce could be used for other things as well. Good luck with the recipe books! Sounds yum!

    1. The dipping sauce was a breeze and would be perfect for so many things.
      I think you would like the shrimp too and since you entertain frequently I can see you and your friends sipping on wine and enjoying them.

  17. These recipes sound delicious! I LOVE coconut shrimp, and just can't get enough of it when I spy it on a menu. I don't do any deep fat frying for my fear of burning down the house. My mother did this exact thing when I was little ... well, just the kitchen ... but it left me imprinted for life. I leave that to the restaurants. Am going to keep that honey dip recipe on hand though ... yummy!! Thanks for sharing these Jemma :)

  27. I love shrimp, but sadly have never liked coconut. I know, odd isn't it? Everyone seems to love it except me. However, I like your recipe for marmalade sauce and will be trying it soon. Good luck on your little cookbooks. I be anxious to see them.
