Coconut Shrimp

My children all love coconut shrimp and if it is on the menu at a restaurant, you can be sure someone at our table has ordered it for dinner! I went on a mission to find a recipe that I could make at home. One of my sons can’t seem to get enough of coconut shrimp and this recipe he loves. And believe me, he has tried it everywhere! Everyone really enjoyed this dish. We dip ours in orange marmalade and it’s the perfect combination! Enjoy!
