|Shrimp and Coconut Fritters|
|photo by recipe author|
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
- 1 1/2 pounds raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1 egg
- 2 green onions, trimmed and chopped
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, to fry the fritters
Coarsely chop half of the shrimp, and set them aside. Place the rest of the shrimp in a food processor along with the coconut, egg, green onions, ginger, and salt. Pulse until you have a chunky paste. Transfer the paste to a mixing bowl, and fold in the chopped shrimp.
Heat enough coconut oil to just cover the bottom of your skillet. Adjust the heat to medium-high, and drop in the fritter batter in portions of about a quarter of a cup. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden and cooked through. Remove the cooked fritters to drain on paper towels. Serve hot. This makes about ten fritters.
