skinny coconut shrimp


happy monday, y'all! i just wanted to share another delish recipe. i have so many piling up & now that I don't eat meat, I gotta share them before i look at them tooooooo long & want to cook them:)  hope everyone had a great weekend. 
if you like shrimp & coconut, you will LOVE this recipe! this is a super easy, quick, clean and delish meal- enjoy
SKINNY COCONUT SHRIMP

ingredients
1 lb. peeled, deveined, tail-off, large shrimp (frozen is fine if you thaw)
1/2 cup dry coconut flakes, no added sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat Panko bread crumbs (or make your own with this recipe)
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
2 egg whites
2 tsp. coconut oil
directions
1 – pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel if they are damp or wet.
2 – in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the egg whites and the coconut oil.
3 – in a separate medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut flakes, bread crumbs, garlic and onion powder.
4 – drop the shrimp in the egg whites and give them a good stir.
5 – pick them out (I used my hands), allowing them to drip off a bit of the excess and drop them in the dry coconut mixture.
6 – shake them around until they are coated and then place them individually on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
7 – bake at 350 for 20 minutes (no more!). They should be lightly golden brown.
i ate mine over a bed of fresh spinach.....delish!! 
** if you like HOT stuff, use some rooster sauce for dipping :)
