ISO help with coconut in a recipe

I'm making deep fried bananas and pineapples ( fritters). The recipe needed shredded coconut, but I couldn't find fresh or freeze dried, so I got flaked coconut (dried) instead...

1. do I need to soak it before I use it ?

Depending on the recipe you can add the dried coconut to the batter or just use it to coat the fruit. You need not soak it in any liquid, it should work well in it's dried form.

Sounds to me that if you soak it it won't stick to the bananas. Check the recipe. You might even want to roast it a bit for extra taste. Good luck.
