This recipe produced a beautiful product, but I was left wanting more in the flavor and texture. To be more specific; A longer shredded coconut approx. 1 1/2 cm makes a big difference. I initially tried this recipe using an organic short shredded unsweetened coconut. The longer shredded pieces crisp much more effectively and take on more golden tones. In addition to this I also recommend seasoning the coconut mixture. Cayenne, white and black pepper, and garlic powder elevate the flavor of the shrimp to an enjoyable level. Lastly, I am never a fan of anything that says use "beer." There are hundreds of types of beer with ranging flavors and depths. NEVER use a beer that you wouldn't drink. I used blue moon in the mixture and it was perfect. Many sites will tell you to use pabst or some other cheap junk. There are plenty of light beers that will add the perfect aroma and kick to your dish, and being specific in this area is important.
