The recipe is perfect. If you want to substitute anything, maybe the jerk seasoning. Cajun seasoning also works nicely.
I don't usually like a recipe where the clean up takes longer than the cooking, but this is an exception. The shrimp was surprisingly crunchy and delicious. I used frozen shrimp because I hate cleaning and deveining shrimp. I love how the recipe says, "devein, if desired." When is that not desirable? I would serve to company -- because it is not fried, it does not need to be served immediately. I did not enjoy the orange marmalade sauce, but I hate mustard. Still looking for a good sauce.
yummy... i've been craving coconut shrimp and after comparing recipes, this was the most flavorful, easiest, and healthiest. will definitely keep this in mind the next time a craving pops up. served with maui mustard sauce (http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=682941)
This is the best Coconut Shrimp I've ever tasted! Fabulous recipe! The dipping sauce that another reader submitted is what made it truly amazing (1/2 cup reduced sugar orange marmalade, 1/4 c. dijon mustard, 1/4 c. honey and less than 1/4 t. hot pepper sauce.) I used 1 pound large frozen peeled shrimp with tail on, and I still needed to add 1 more egg white and 50% more cornstarch/jerk seasoning. I placed shrimp on sprayed wire rack, sprayed shrimp, then squeezed shrimp with 2nd sprayed rack and flipped all the shrimp at once. Ditto when flipping shrimp at 8 minutes.
This was very good! I didn't have a wire rack to put the shrimp on so i just had to lay them on a cookie sheet. i think they weren't as crunchy as they should have been b/c of that. probably would have been just as good fried.
So easy and incredible! The cooking spray you put on before baking really gives it that crunchy deep-fried texture!! They tasted better than some I've had in restaurants! I served them with a dipping sauce as follows: 1/2 cup reduced sugar orange marmalade, 1/4 cup dijon mustard, 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce. Gave it just the right kick! DELICIOUS!!
