Beer Battered Coconut Shrimp

I L*O*V*E seafood in the summertime!! And I happen to love coconut shrimp! I was so pleased when I came across this recipe because I knew we would love it! 
They turned out amazing! 

Beer Battered Coconut Shrimp and a Sweet Chili Citrus Sauce
serves 4, about 5 shrimp each

20 jumbo shrimp or prawns, about 1 1/2 lb, peeled and deveined with the tails left on1 1/3 cup flour1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder1 cup beer, I used Sam Adams Summer Ale, Eric's favorite2 cups shredded coconut, I used sweetened1/4 cup coconut milk2 tablespoons sugar1 teaspoon garlic powder1 teaspoon paprika1/2 teaspoon each, salt and pepper3-4 cups vegetable oil

Sweet Chili Citrus Sauce1/.3 cup sweet red chili sauce, found near the thai food1 cup pineapple preserves, orange would work good too1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

For the Shrimp.

Pour oil in a medium sized saucepan and heat on med hi until it reached 360 degrees. An oil thermometer works wonderfully here! Mix together chili sauce and preserves and microwave for 30 seconds. Add the cilantro, mix and set aside.

Mix together flower, baking powder, beer, coconut milk, sugar, and spices. pour your coconut in a separate shallow bowl.

Once oil reached temperature, dredge 1 shrimp into the batter, and then into the shredded coconut, pressing the coconut into the batter.

Carefully, drop into the oil and fry for 3 to 4 minutes. With a metal slotted spoon, carefully remove the shrimp and place them on a plate, lined with a paper towel. I did 3 shrimps at a time to no over crowd the pan and they all came out perfect. 
Serve with Sweet Chili and Citrus Sauce
