How to make it

  • Combine beer, baking powder, 1/2 cup flour, and egg in a mixing bowl. Place 1/4 cup flour and coconut in two different bowls.
  • Hold shrimp by the tail, and place in flour. Shake off the excess then dip in the egg/beer batter and allow excess to drip off. Roll the shrimp in coconut, then place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes. Then, in a deep-fryer, heat oil to 350 degrees F.
  • Fry shrimp in batches: cook, turning only once, for 2-3 minutes, or until they turn a golden brown. Remove the shrimp using tongs and place on paper towels to drain. Serve warm with your desired dipping sauce.

    I've used milk instead of beer in desperate moments when I'm absolutely dying to eat coconut shrimp w/o having to run to the store...and it came out pretty good...I also added cayenne pepper to make it spicy

    The alcohol should burn out of the food, but I admit that I too shy away from recipes involving beer because I don't want to go buy a six-pack to only use one can.
