Ingredients for Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

One dozen large shrimp, raw and peeled
1 Cup whole wheat Panko Breadcrumbs (Ian's brand is a good one)
1 Cup Coconut, dried and unsweetened
1 Tbsp Cornstarch
1/2 Cup Coconut flour (I like Arrowhead Mills organic)
1/2 Cup raw egg white

How to Make Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

Mix the panko and coconut in one bowl.
Mix the flour and cornstarch in a second bowl.
Place the mixed egg whites in a third bowl.
Dip each shrimp first into the flour mixture, next into the egg and finally into the coconut mixture until nicely coated.
Place coated shrimp into the Fry Basket.
Cook for 10 minutes at 350° F, turning them over half way through cooking

8 Smartpoints per serving; 4 Shrimp per serving 

Tips for Making Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

  • Dip in your favorite sauce or one made of plain, fat-free Greek yogurt mixed with dill and onion powder and fresh-squeezed lemon juice.
  • Keep an eye on grocery sale papers, most of the time you can get these shrimp on a BOGO sale, then save the other bag for later.
  • For easy cleanup, you definitely need to use these parchment papers. They are a lifesaver!
  • Don't forget to get an oil spritzer!
