These coconut fried shrimp with sweet and spicy chili apricot sauce are the perfect game day appetizer or meal!
One of my favorite appetizers to order out is coconut shrimp, so I started making it at home and it’s super easy to do!
I love making a batch of these to put over a salad for a quick dinner idea or serving up a platter of these as a game day finger food.
You really can’t go wrong when you serve these to a crowd. 🙂
I could do without coconut on most things, but for some reason I love it like this. Something about that sweet crunch pairs perfectly with the delicate shrimp.
When I’m making these as a dinner I use jumbo sized, but for an appetizer medium works well since you get more bang for your buck that way.
If you do buy the jumbo sized, get them with the shells still on. Those are great to use to make shrimp stock so you can make chowder which I’m planning to do soon. Yum 🙂
Not into shrimp? You can do this using small pieces of chicken too. I’ve done it both ways and they both are great!
Here’s how to make it…
I hope you love this easy and delicious coconut fried shrimp recipe!
I bet you’ll really love these too if you’re looking for some awesome game day grub…
