Beer Battered Coconut Shrimp

Beer Battered Coconut Shrimp is a delicious flavor sensation with sweet coconut, crunchy Panko Japanese bread crumbs, and beer batter fried until crispy golden brown! 

We enjoyed ours with regular Shrimp Cocktail Sauce, Sweet Chili Sauce, and crispy french fries. You could use any sauce recipe you like.
