Easy Baked Coconut Shrimp

What's better than an easy, healthy shrimp recipe?

How about an easy, healthy coconut shrimp recipe?

When the winter weather dial is squarely fixed on "doldrums," or you're just feeling like you need a little escape, this recipe could be your quick ticket to transcend the weather or your mood.  With just four ingredients and a bit of salt and pepper, you'll be in your happy place before too long.

Baked Coconut Shrimp

1 pound uncooked large shrimp (16-20 count), peeled and de-veined*
2-3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup unsweetened, flaked coconut**
salt and pepper to taste (about 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon)
cooking spray or a bit of oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Add the cornstarch to a bowl, and coat each shrimp.

Next, whisk the egg in bowl and dip each shrimp, one at a time in the egg (using a fork will keep your fingers from getting coated, too!).

Then mix the coconut with the salt and pepper in a third bowl and dip each shrimp in the coconut mixture.

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray or brush with oil and place each shrimp on the baking sheet.

Bake for about 8 minutes.

Turn your oven to BROIL and broil the shrimp for about 1 minute, or until they are slightly browned on top.

 Serve immediately.

Serves 4.

*If you live in Central Ohio, Market District has amazingly fresh East Coast, wild shrimp for a great price. 
**Speaking of Market District, their new expanded bulk section is also amazing, and has unsweetened coconut (the pre-bagged coconut almost always is sweetened and has preservatives)

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
