Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
- 2 5oz packages Sizzlefish Wild Gulf Shrimp
- 3 TBSP Coconut Flour
- ¾ cup Unsweetened Coconut Fakes
- 1 large Egg, beaten
- ¼ tsp Garlic powder
- ¼ tsp Onion Powder
- 1/4 tsp Smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
- 1/8 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Mango Avocado Salad:
- 1 Large Mango, medium diced
- 1 Large Avocado, medium diced
- 1 Small Shallot, thinly sliced
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place a nonstick wire rack onto a lined baking sheet. Evenly oil the wire rack to avoid the shrimp from sticking.
- In three separate bowls, place the coconut flour in one, the flaked coconut in another, and the beaten egg in the last bowl.
- In the bowl with the coconut flour, add the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, kosher salt and ground black pepper. Stir well to combine.
- Lay the shrimp out and pat each dry with a paper towel. This will help the seasonings stay on and provide a crispier end product.
- Using a fork, place each piece of shrimp in the coconut flour mixture, then dip in the beaten egg, and then place the shrimp in the coconut flakes. Lightly press the shrimp into the coconut flakes and shake off access before placing on the prepared wire rack.
- Bake the shrimp for 10 - 15 minutes, until firm and cooked through. They will turn a beautiful golden brown, but watch them carefully, in the end, to make sure they don’t burn.
- While the shrimp cook, prepare the salad by mixing the diced mango, avocado, and sliced shallots in a bowl. Stir to combine. Lightly salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve over a bed of mixed greens.
