Coconut Shrimp

Some of us were talking about Outback's Coconut Shrimp on the dinner thread last night so thought I'd find a recipe for anyone interested.

Outback Steakhouse Copycat Recipes: Coconut Shrimp

Thanks, I was one of those who'd never made coconut shrimp.

Join the club! I too have never made it or eaten it.

It's really delicious, although I've never made it myself. It's quite popular in the south pacific.

I used to make it frequently, but my recipe was a bit different. I use orange juice instead of beer, and no sugar.

I love coconut shrimp, but lately I just don't want the mess of deep frying.

I want to make this recipe.
I thought I was happy with my $45 Cool Daddy fryer made by Presto, but I'm not now. It's kinda neat the way the lid flips up and the basket can be lowered down and all. The damn thing just can't fry fish for fish and chips worth a damn. It does OK with chicken drummettes and wings, but I still have to fry them a good 12 minutes. Also, I took a temp reading and the oil never really got past 350F at peak heat . The temp drops off drastically when the food hits the oil (even tho the food wasn't cold) and takes too long to get back up to temp. I'm looking into buying a better fryer. Also, I'm not that good yet at deep frying foods using my large cast iron skillet. Also, I read that frying with oil and a skillet is different than deep fat frying with oil. I'm still learning and hope to one day master cooking southern fried chicken using my CI skillet.

I'm wondering how coconut milk would sub for the orange juice or beer?
It sounds reasonable me thinks.

Yup it is. A couple of reason of why they do that. The food item will cook faster and it makes for a better presentation. It also makes some folks think they are getting extra jumbo shrimp. More for their money.

You can't really deep-fry in a skillet because in deep frying, the food is submerged in and surrounded by the oil. You can deep-fry in a Dutch oven. Usually with skillet frying, the oil comes about halfway up the sides of the food.
