Prep 15min
Cook 15min
Total 30min

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 1 1/4 lb jumbo shrimp
  • 1/2 cup lite coconut milk (use coconut milk from a carton or can)
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg white, beaten
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Batter
    • 3/4 cup coconut flour (or oat flour)
    • 3 tablespoons The Fit Cook Southern Creole (cajun) blend


Step 1

Set air fryer to 400F – 410F.

Step 2

Pat dry the shrimp then place them in a bowl, pour lite coconut milk over the shrimp and let them rest for about 10 minutes at room temperature.

Step 3

Mix together the ingredients for the batter. Set aside. Whisk eggs in another bowl and add coconut to another bowl, then set both aside.

Step 4

Take a piece of shrimp, gently shake excess milk off of it, then dip it in the flour, then the egg, then the shredded coconut. Place it in your air-fryer basket (or on a baking tray lined with parchment). Repeat for the remaining shrimp.

Step 5

Lightly spray the shrimp with avocado oil or cooking spray, then air-fry for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through if needed.

Step 6

Once air-fried, add some flake salt if you’d like, then enjoy the shrimp with the pineapple sauce (see below).

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
