  • How to make coconut shrimp?

    It is fast and super easy to make coconut shrimp. Coat in flour, egg, and shredded coconut before frying in oil. Remember to shake off any excess flour before coating the shrimps in egg. Fry for about 2-3 minutes until the shrimps are golden.

  • What to dip coconut shrimp in?

    We recommend a prickling dipping sauce of Castello® cream cheese with chili and ginger mixed with sour cream and lime. The soft cream cheese dip with the spicy flavours accompanies the crunchy and sweet shrimps very well.

  • What to serve with coconut shrimp?

    You can serve coconut shrimp with cream cheese dip on its own as an entertaining appetiser or a small snack. You can also make it as part of a bigger buffet with different finger foods. Or serve it as its own dinner meal together with some fresh salad or a side of rice.

  • How long does coconut shrimp keep?

    You can store fried coconut shrimp for up to three days in the fridge in an airtight container. In the freezer, they will keep for up to two months.
