Your friends would never guess they’re Whole30 coconut shrimp! One of our very favorite quick Whole30 dinner recipes for sure.
- 1 pound large shrimp (peeled and deveined)
- 2 eggs (whisked well)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- coconut oil for frying (I prefer refined but unrefined works great here, too)
- 1/2 cup St. Dalfour orange marmalade (you must use a juice-sweetened orange marmalade to be Whole30 compliant; if you’re paleo or with no dietary restriction, pick one that sounds good to you)
- 2 teaspoons stoneground mustard
- 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
- 1 pinch salt
- Combine all sauce ingredients; whisk well. Chill while you make shrimp.
- In a shallow bowl, pour whisked eggs. In another shallow bowl, combine coconut and coconut flour. Season both sides of shrimp with plenty of salt.
- Dip each shrimp into the eggs then coat with coconut mixture. I placed the egg-coated shrimp on top of the coconut mixture then covered them with large pinches of the coconut mixture. I pressed down on the shrimp to firmly coat the bottom of the shrimp. Set aside on a baking sheet; repeat with remaining shrimp. If you run out of coconut mixture, replenish in the ratio of 4 parts coconut to 1 part coconut flour (e.g., 1/4 cup coconut + 1 tablespoon coconut flour).
- Heat enough coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat to coat surface. Fry the shrimp in batches until golden brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes total per batch. The bottom of the shrimp will be a beautiful golden brown; flip and cook the other side. Don’t overcook. In between batches, clean out your skillet; the residual coconut mixture will burn otherwise.
- Drain cooked shrimp on paper towels or brown paper bags. Serve with plenty of orange dipping sauce.
