3/4 cup coconut oil
2 large eggs
Sea salt
Freshly ground peppper
2 cups shredded coconut
1 1/2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined


Pour coconut oil into a large heavy-bottomed pot or cast iron skillet (you want at least 2 to 3 inches of oil for frying), and heat over medium-high heat.

Beat eggs, a pinch of salt, and freshly ground pepper together in a small bowl. Place shredded coconut on a plate.

Pat shrimp dry, then dip in egg mixture and dredge in shredded coconut, pressing the coconut to the shrimp to cover all sides.

Working in batches, fry shrimp in hot oil until golden brown, about 3 minutes.
