Ingredients
24 shrimp
2/3 cup beer
2 cups coconut, flaked
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg
3 cups oil (for frying)

Directions
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.

Honestly, when I really get a craving for it, I go there. :dunno: It'd be great to have a recipe for that to go along with this shrimp recipe though......

also here is a recipe for pineapple/habanero dipping sauce for these shrimp it is delicious.


Pineapple-Habanero Chutney:
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chopped onions
Pinch salt
2 cups small diced pineapple
1/2 cup small diced red bell pepper
1 tablespoon minced habanero
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onions. Season with salt and saute for 2 minutes. Add the pineapple, red bell pepper and habanero. Continue to saute until the pineapple is soft, about 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the vinegar and the sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil. In a small bowl combine the cornstarch and water and whisk until smooth. Stir the slurry into the pineapple mixture and return mixture to a boil. Continue to cook for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and cool completely. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
