Gluten, Egg & Dairy Free Coconut Shrimp

Looking for a great recipe for Coconut Shrimp that’s Gluten, Egg and Dairy free? Look no further! (and even if you aren’t GF, EF, DF these are so amazing you won’t even miss those ingredients!) This is super simple and tastes amazing, especially when served with my Spicy Mango Sauce and Coconut Risotto!

Here’s what you need:

If your shrimp are frozen, thaw in a bowl of room temperature water and drain. Peel your shrimp, leaving the tail, if desired.

Combine Coconut Flour, sugar, Cornstarch, Baking Powder, Salt, Black Pepper and crushed red pepper in a medium bowl. Add in coconut milk and enough water to make a batter.

Dip each shrimp in the Batter then dip into the Shredded Coconut to coat well. Set your breaded shrimp on wax paper until ready to fry. You can also freeze them for later – the batter will actually stay attached to the shrimp better if you fry them from frozen (works with most other fried foods too!)

Deep or pan fry until golden brown over medium heat. Allow to drain on paper towel lined plate and lightly salt.

Serve with my Spicy Mango Sauce (Click HERE for the Recipe) and Coconut Milk Risotto (Recipe coming soon!)

    1. The same as a fry any other food, in fat. How much fat did you use, was the temp high enough for a good sizzle? What type of fat did you use?

  1. These turned out phenomenal! I only wish I had bought the items to make the mango dip because a dip with them would have made it perfect! My family has a number of food allergies and we frequent the same recipes because of our restrictions, I was so glad that I didn’t need to substitute anything to make an allergen free dinner!

  2. This was such a success. I am eating on a leaky gut diet that allows me to eat in a very limited way. I made a few of these at a family dinner and they were a complete success, everyone wished I had made more! Thanks again 🙂
