Paleo Coconut Shrimp

This Everyday Paleo recipe is one of my children’s favorites.  They ask for it at least once a month!  I combined Sarah’s recipe with another I found and came up with this delicious and healthy seafood dish.

PALEO COCONUT SHRIMP

Ingredients:

1 lb large shrimp, tail on peeled and deveined

1/3 cup coconut flour

½ teaspoon sea salt

½ tsp paprika

½ tsp garlic powder

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

3 egg whites

¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

3 tbs coconut oil

Directions:

Peel and de-vein shrimp.  Run under cool water but do not pat dry.

Beat egg whites with spices.

Heat coconut oil in large skillet to medium high heat

Place coconut flour, egg mixture, and shredded coconut in separate bowls or shallow dishes and set up a dredging station.    Working from left to right, dredge damp shrimp in coconut flour, egg mixture, and shredded coconut flour.  Lay on plate to set for 10 minutes.  Add to hot oil and cook until browned, turning once.
