OMG!! the shrimp are so DELICIOUS!! you don't even need any dipping sauce! I made this as an entree with rice and steamed broccoli. I followed the shrimp recipe exactly (well, I used 27 shrimp and homemade breadcrumbs ~ doubling the breadcrumbs but not the coconut). I didn't prepare the Maui Mustard Sauce as given since nobody else in the household would eat it, so I simply mixed some fig preserves with a bit of stone ground mustard for me (really good on the broccoli). I made orange sauce from everyone else.

Delicious and easy! I used 1 lb. of jumbo shrimp and after breading baked until the coconut toasted on each side - about 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Made the Maui Mustard Sauce with peach and apricot preserves and a mixture of dijon and whole grain mustard with garlic. Yummy!

OMG is right! This shrimp is delicious. My family and I could not stop eating it. If you want to impress someone special cook this shrimp, it will be worth it! I accompanied the shrimp with a lemon-cilantro white rice and an organic lettuce salad with dry cranberries, toasted almonds and a splash of commercial champagne dressing.

Can't seem to find recipe for Maui Mustard Sauce for Coconut Shrimp

This recipe does not link to the Maui Mustard Sauce, but you can search the website for the sauce recipe. It's just 1/3 c. of pineapple preserves, 1/3 c. of apricot preserves and 1/4 c. of stone-ground mustard. Stir together, cover and chill.

Very good! I had to improvise on the beer, I didn't have any. I used apple cider vinegar and baking soda mixed together. It turned out really well! I believe the 20 minutes in the freezer is essential, otherwise the coating falls of in the oil. I will definitely be making this again. Oh, I made my sauce using orange marmalade, stone ground mustard and a small amount of prepared horseradish mixed together and chilled. It was great!

Not sure what went wrong but the batter did not stay on the shrimp at all. We put in freeze per recipe. Unless someone has the solution I won't be making this again. Was really looking for something like the picture. Not even close. Maybe baking would have worked better. I always have good luck with recipes so this was a surprise.

I had the same issue as others as I could not get the batter to stick to the shrimp. After all the prep, it turned into a big disappointment and a mess. The Maui sauce though (there is a link now) was really tasty and I hope I can use it for other recipes. I will not be making this again.
