Cooking spray
2 large eggs
cup all purpose flour
6 oz. beer,about ⅔ cup
1 tsp baking powder
tsp salt
2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
24 large shrimp,peeled and deveined (leave tails on)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. In a medium bowl,whisk together eggs, cup of flour,beer,baking powder and salt. Place remaining cup of flour and coconut in two separate shallow bowls.
Holding shrimp by their tails,dredge each shrimp in flour and shake off excess.Dip flour coated shrimp into egg batter and allow excess to drip off.Roll shrimp in coconut and turn to coat both sides (press coconut onto shrimp to make it stick).
Transfer shrimp to prepared baking sheet and spray surface of shrimp with cooking spray. Bake until coconut is golden brown and shrimp are bright pink and cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Baking the shrimp instead of deep frying them in oil reduces calories.
