I tried this recipe just as written. The first two batches I fried were basically fried shrimp with fried coconut on the side! Every bit came off in the frying. I tried chilling the next batch of shrimp, per one reviewer's suggestion, this helped a little, but having to "mold the coconut" onto each shrimp was way too much effort for not enough result. I ended up simply sauteeing the rest of the batch, and serving over pasta. The only thing I didn't try was to add flour to the coconut. I even tried some by making a paste of the batter and coconut...these actually did the best, but again, that was way too much effort. I have a big family, and it would take too long to get enough made for us.
