Does anyone know the Dream Dinners recipe for coconut shrimp?



Here's a recipe that seems basically the same as Dream Dinners. You will need to make a couple of changes to make it exactly like Dream Dinners' but I'll discuss those after the recipe.:


•18-24 medium to large raw shrimp, butterflied (tails can be left on)
•1/2 cup dry shredded/flaked coconut (baking type)
•2-3 eggs
•1/2 Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
•1/2 tsp. salt
•1 tsp. onion powder
•1 tsp. garlic salt
•1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper OR dried crushed chili
•1 tsp. white sugar


1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Also prepare a baking sheet by spraying it with cooking oil, or covering it with parchment paper.
2.Stir the Coating Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.
3.In another smaller bowl, lightly beat 2 eggs. In a third bowl, place the shredded/flaked coconut.
4.Holding the shrimp by their tails, dip first into the beaten egg, then in the panko mix to lightly coat, then dip back in the egg, and finally roll in the coconut. Lay the shrimp on its side on your prepared baking sheet. Depending on the size and number of shrimp you're making, you may need to use one more egg. Tip: Since they are going to be baked, avoid over-coating, or your shrimp will be flat on one side.
5.Bake on the middle rack at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, or until coconut is lightly toasted (light golden-brown). Turn the shrimp halfway through baking


I found the ingredients here: . (See the July 9th post.)
1. Add flour and cornstarch to the coating.
2. Replace the eggs with a mixture of egg whites and buttermilk.
3. Replace the onion powder and garlic salt with chili powder.

That's it! Good luck!
