Coconut Tempura Shrimp


Here is a new twist on Tempura, the famous Japanese fried food. This one is sort of like Japan meets India.



  1. Heat the fryer.
  2. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, egg, coconut, and soda water. Mix well to make a smooth batter. Season with salt.
  3. Season the shrimp with Creole seasoning. Holding the tail of the shrimp, dip in the batter, coating completely and shaking off the excess. Fry the shrimp in batches until golden brown, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  4. Remove shrimp and drain on paper towels.
  5. Season with Creole seasoning.
  6. Peel the plantains. Slice the plantains thinly, lengthwise. Fry them until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with Creole seasoning.
  7. Mound some mango chutney in the center of each plate. Lay the shrimp around the chutney.
  8. Garnish with fried plantains and cilantro.

Serves 6.
