For the Shrimp

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Dry the shrimp. Sprinkle them with just a pinch of salt.
  • Make an assembly line with two bowls and your baking sheet. Put the beaten egg in one bowl. The second bowl will have a mixture of the panko and coconut.
  • Dip each shrimp individually in the egg. Next dip the shrimp in the coconut and panko mixture. Take the same shrimp and put it BACK in the egg and then back in the panko and coconut. The second time around make sure the shrimp is covered evenly and looks nice. Put the shrimp on the baking sheet.
  • Repeat with each shrimp until they are all lined up on your baking sheet.
  • Bake on 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
