2 lbs. fresh large cleaned shrimp - raw


1 ½ cups milk plus 1 tablespoon vinegar
Zest & juice of l lime
Dashes of red pepper flakes
Dashes of curry powder
Dashes of paprika
Dashes of chili powder

Shrimp Coating:

2 cups of all-purpose flour plus 1 tsp. baking powder
1 ½ cups of shredded coconut
1 ½ cups instant potatoes

Vegetable oil for frying

Combine all of the ingredients for the marinade and add the cleaned raw shrimp. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour or more.

In a medium sized shallow dish place the flour with the baking soda. In a separate shallow dish place the coconut with the instant potatoes.

Remove the shrimp from the marinade and place in a separate dish, DO NOT!! Throw the marinade out.

Dip the shrimp first in the flour and baking soda, then in the marinade and finally in the coconut and instant potato bowl.

Heat a large frying pan with about an inch of vegetable oil; add the garlic to the oil. Carefully, place the battered shrimp in the hot oil, turning only once. Fry until a beautiful golden color. Place on paper towels to drain after frying and before plating.

This is a real treat!!
