  • 9 oz raw shrimp, shells removed
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

Whisk together egg and coconut milk. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, coconut, Old Bay and baking powder. Dip shrimp in milk mixture, then coat with flour mix. Lightly spray air fryer, then add shrimp and lightly spray again. Cook at 400 degrees for four minutes or until crisp. Be careful not to overcook or shrimp will be dry.

Serve with veggies of choice. Recipe makes one serving. Enjoy!
