  • 1 lb of raw shrimp, devained with tails on (aprox 18-20 shrimp)
  • 1 cup of coconut shredded
  • ½ cup of almond flour
  • cup of tapioca starch leave out to make it keto
  • 2 tsp of seafood seasoning see post of recipe

  • Spray the air fryer basket with oil, evenly and set aside.
  • In a bowl add the almond flour, 1 tsp worth of seafood seasoning and shredded coconut, mix together to thoroughly combine.
  • Place devained shrimp in a bowl and set aside.
  • Crack the egg in a bowl then whisk in the coconut milk, 1 tsp worth of the seafood seasoning and tapioca starch to form a smooth batter.
  • Dip each shrimp in the batter first, holding it by the tail to coat evenly.
  • Then roll in the coconut and shake off any excess. Repeat this and above step with the rest of the shrimp.
