Favorite Ingredients Friday (Coconut Fried Shrimp)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Check out my upcoming themed schedule below:

Upcoming 2009 "Themed" Schedule
March 13- Side Dishes Edition
March 27- Mexican Food Edition
April 10- Easter Edition

With Lent if full swing, I thought I'd offer up a seafood recipe.  I made these the other night, threw them on a bed of mixed greens tossed with onions, cherry tomatoes, pecans, and a light vinaigrette dressing,  YUM!!!

I found the recipe off of Kraftfoods.com.

Coconut Fried Shrimp

Ingredients
1 cup BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 lb. cleaned shrimp
1 egg, slightly beaten
oil for frying (canola, corn, peanut, safflower or soybean)

Directions
1. MIX coconut, flour, salt and pepper. Dip shrimp in egg; roll in coconut mixture.

2. HEAT oil in large deep skillet on medium heat to 325°F.

3. ADD shrimp; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with lemon wedges or a sauce, if desired.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
