Prawns are crumbed with coconut then baked in the oven until cooked which creates a crunchy outside and a tender inside. Serve with your favourite prawn dipping sauce.
Absolutely delicious! Here's the orange marmalade sauce recipe I used: 1 cup of orange marmalade, two tablespoons horseradish, and two tablespoons dijon mustard. - 20 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
We love coconut shrimp so I was very happy to see this recipe chosen for the Recipe Group this week. We prepared these exactly as written and they are absolutely perfect. They took 14 minutes on convection bake in my oven. The shrimp were perfectly cooked and the coconut breading was crunchy and very flavorful, but not overly sweet. I found a copy-cat recipe on-line for Outback's sauce that they serve with these - 1/2 cup orange marmalade, 2 teaspoons stone ground mustard with seeds, 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish and a dash of salt. It really does taste exactly like Outback's. We will be making and enjoying these often. Thanks for sharing! - 24 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Wow, I have to say this was one of those surprise good meals! I didn't quite know what to think about baking shrimp for 15 or 20 minutes but I took them out at 16 minutes and they were absolutely perfect! The coconut was just toasted and the shrimp were not over cooked. I had 1 lb of 30 count shrimp and the measurements turned out perfect. I will definately make this again. - 17 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
