Ingredients:  
Shrimp - 1 bag, about 30 shrimp, peeled and deveined with the tails attached
Eggs - 2 large eggs, beaten
Flour - cup
Sugared Coconut - 1 ⅓ cup or more to taste
Planko crumbs - cup
Vegetable oil - 2 tbsp.
Sweet Chili Sauce - for dipping, can be found in the international aisle of your favorite grocery store

Directions:
Directions:
*Prepare 3 bowls, one bowl with just flour, another with just the beaten eggs, and the last bowl mix the coconut with the planko crumbs. After washing the shrimp, dip each shrimp first in the flour, then the eggs, and then the coconut and planko mixture. Set aside all the well-coated shrimp, while you heat the vegetable oil in a large fry pan on medium-low heat.

*Cook about half the shrimp at a time, carefully not to overcrowd them in the pan. Cook about 1 minute on each side. Swap out oil if needed, in order not to burn the coconut.

*Serve with sweet chili sauce for dipping

*Wild rice is a great side to this dish as well!

My sister suggested wild rice as a side, along with the sweet chili sauce as a dipping sauce for the shrimp. Please do not eat the tails :)
