How to make it
- Place all apricot dipping sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, beer, baking soda, salt, cayenne, and egg. Beat until it is smooth. Add a bit more flour or beer, if necessary, so that the batter has the consistency of thick pancake batter.
- Tightly wrap each shrimp like a pinwheel (with the tail end of the shrimp on the outside) and skewer 1 shrimp on the end of each skewer. Use a paper towel to pat the shrimp dry.
- Pour oil into a small, tall pot until it is 3 inches deep (I use a small fryer so in that case, fill oil up to line). Heat oil until it reaches 350 degrees F.
- While oil is heating, dip each shrimp into the batter, then dredge into the coconut shreds so that the entire "lollypop" is covered in coconut shreds.
- When oil is ready, submerge 6 shrimp at a time into oil (with the skewers sticking out of the pot). Fry for approximately 1 minute, or until coconut is a golden brown, rotating the top of the skewer once or twice. Remove and place lollypops on paper towel to absorb excess oil.
- Skim any wayward coconut shreds from the oil. Adjust heat so that it is 350 degrees F again and continue with next batch. Serve with apricot dipping sauce.
