REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I have made this recipe many times and, of course, absolutely love it! Very easy to make without a lot of fuss. I usually serve coconut shrimp with orange marmalade (Smucker's or another brand depending on what I can find). You can also use any regular pancake mix, it doesn't have to be just Bisquick and it still comes out GREAT. I think it might also be possible to freeze - just prepare according to the recipe, but DON'T deep fry. I haven't tried this, but I have found coconut shrimp in the freezer section of the grocery store. I have also seen orange marmalade packets come with the frozen coconut shrimp, so freezing the marmalade is also possible.

The recipe is easy to make. The batter holds the coconut on the shrimp while frying. Really good!

my sister made this recipe and boy did my daugthers love it so did I. It was the best thing that I have tasted in some time. My youngest likes her shrimp plain but when she tasted this she couldn't get enough. My pickiest eater wanted more when she saw they were all gone.
