Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine egg, 1/2 cup flour, Belikin beer and baking powder. Place 1/4 cup flour and coconut in two separate bowls.
  2. Hold shrimp by the tail, and dredge in flour, shaking off excess flour. Dip in egg/ Belikin beer batter; allow excess to drip off. Roll shrimp in coconut, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat coconut oil to 350 degrees F in a deep-fryer.
  3. Fry shrimp in batches: cook, turning once, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Using tongs, remove shrimp to paper towels to drain. Serve warm with your favorite home made dipping-sauce.
