Like many of you, I've been glued to the Olympics for the past week. I love the watching the competitions but I've also been drawn to the interviews with the athletes. Their stories are inspiring and inspirational. "Do what you love" - seems to be the common theme among these elite athletes.
So I'm going to take some advice from these Olympic competitors and get to doing what I love - cooking.
I whipped up some coconut shrimp and chicken for our Olympic viewing party tonight and they were so very good. The coconut shrimp was INCREDIBLE and the chicken wasn't too shabby either. I would give this recipe a gold medal.
Coconut Chicken and Shrimp
1 cup flour
1 cup lime flavored seltzer
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 1/4 cups sweetened coconut
1 1/4 cups panko
1 pound shrimp
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Heat oil in skillet. Fry a few pieces at a time, until golden brown. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
I served my coconut shrimp and chicken over brown rice.
I don't fry food very often so these coconut shrimp and chicken were a real treat. I am sure that I could have baked these in the oven but I just love the golden color and crunchy coating on these beautiful little morsels. If you're a fan of coconut shrimp - you absolutely need to try this recipe. You will NOT regret it.
