  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional for a little kick)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger


  1. Start by preparing the mango dipping sauce. In a blender, combine the diced mango, Greek yogurt, honey, lime juice, and grated ginger. Blend until smooth, then refrigerate the sauce until it’s time to serve.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and set them aside. In another shallow bowl, mix the shredded coconut, panko breadcrumbs, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper if you want some heat.
  3. Take each shrimp and coat it in the all-purpose flour, then dip it into the whisked eggs, and finally, coat it in the coconut and breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the coated shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Remove them and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  5. Serve the Crispy Coconut Shrimp hot with the mango dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy your tropical delight!
