Crispy Coconut shrimp

What do you do when you have a craving for deep fried shrimp?
Make yourself some that is high protein and high fiber without the excessive sugar and carbs from boxed shrimp.
This is a super
 simple recipe that is not just great for
coconut shrimp, but it’s also wonderful for chicken strips or anything else that you may want to pan fry for a decadent treat.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 large eggs whites
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 3/4 cup dried unsweetened coconut
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Nutralean 
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lb shrimp
  • 3 tbsps coconut oil


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Peel and devein the shrimp. 
  2. Beat the egg white in a small bowl with water.
  3. In another bowl combine the coconut, Vanilla Nutralean, salt and black pepper.
  4. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Dip each shrimp into the egg and then into the coconut mixture, set into the pan once the oil begins to shimmer. 
  5. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side until the coconut starts to brown and the shrimp begins to curl up and turn pink. 
  6. Flip over and cook an additional 3 minutes adding oil if necessary. 
  7. Transfer to a plate with a paper towel and serve.
