Restaurant Quality, At Home!

If you’re always the first to notice the coconut shrimp on a menu, then you’re going to love this recipe! There’s nothing better than learning how to prepare your favorite restaurant-worthy entrée at home. With this simple recipe, you’ll be able to whip up this favorite dish any time the craving strikes! Coating the shrimp is the most time-consuming part of this recipe, so you know it’s an easy one.

To coat the shrimp, start by setting up three bowls. In one, put your dry mix of flour and garlic powder. Add the beaten egg whites to another. In the last one, place about a cup of finely-shredded coconut (be sure that the coconut is unsweetened).

Once the shrimp are breaded, you’ll bake them in the oven for 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until light golden brown. In the meantime, you can work on the sauce, which includes cooking the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan until hot.

When it comes to the rice, our Success® Boil-in-Bag Jasmine Rice makes this step the easiest step of all. This rice can be made on the stovetop or in the microwave and is done in about 10 minutes.

Topped with roasted cashews, this dish has a bit of crunch, sweet and savory flavors and aromatic rice. It’s simple, bursting with flavor and sure to impress!
