Coconut Shrimp


  • 12 Extra Large cocktail shrimp (I use frozen pre-peeled and cooked, and I thaw them out and remove tails)2
  • 2 Tbsp sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a shallow plate mix together the panko bread crumbs, coconut flakes, and salt.
  3. In another shallow bowl add egg. Beat egg with wire whisk.
  4. Dip shrimp (thawed, no tail on) into egg mixture. Then coat shrimp in panko/coconut mixture.
  5. Places the coated shrimp onto a lined with parchment paper baking sheet
  6. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until they are crispy. (or you can cook them in an air fryer at 390 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until crispy (checking them half way in between) I use my Simple Living air fryer.)

This is what they look like before going into the air fryer. I use the 4 inch baking dish that came with my air fryer.
