A Restaurant Favorite, Made from Scratch

There’s nothing better than learning the ropes to prepare your favorite entree. So, if you’re usually the first to point out the coconut shrimp, then you’re going to love reading this recipe.

To give you a quick overview, coating your shrimp is the most time-consuming part of this recipe. However, to be honest, it doesn’t take too long. Just be sure to dedicate some time and patience to this process.

This includes setting up three bowls. One with your dry mix of flour and garlic powder, the other with beaten egg whites, and the last with about a cup of finely shredded coconut (be sure that the coconut is unsweetened).

Once your shrimp is breaded, you’ll bake them in the oven for five to six minutes on each side or until light golden brown. In the meantime, you can work on the sauce, which includes adding 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 stovetop or in the microwave and is done in about 10 minutes.

Topped with roasted cashews, you’ll enjoy a bit of crunch, a whole lot of sweet and savory flavors, and mouthfuls of aromatic rice.
