Here's a tasty recipe for making Caribbean style coconut shrimp, with a wonderful citrus mango dipping sauce. Coconut shrimp is one of those appetizers that's usually a hit when family and friends get together. See below for the recipe for the mango dipping sauce.


  • 1 local egg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup belikin beer (Belizean beer)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups flaked coconut
  • 24 shrimp
  • 3 cups coconut oil for frying

See video below:


  1. In medium bowl, combine egg, 1/2 cup flour, belikin beer and baking powder. Place 1/4 cup flour and coconut in two separate bowls.
  2. Hold shrimp by tail, and dredge in flour, shaking off excess flour. Dip in egg/ belikin beer batter; allow excess to drip off. Roll shrimp in coconut, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat coconut oil to 350 degrees F in a deep-fryer.
  3. Fry shrimp in batches: cook, turning once, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Using tongs, remove shrimp to paper towels to drain. Serve warm with your favorite home made dipping sauce.
