“We served these with Tartar Sauce and they were awesome, if I must say so myself. There are two Tartar Sauce recipes on zaar that look like the one we made. PanNan's #47077, or Kitten's #116984 have similar ingredients.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 1-1/2 inches oil in a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat to 350ºF.
  2. Lightly coat shrimp with 1/4 cup baking mix and crushed red pepper.
  3. Combine 1 cup baking mix and remaining ingredients, except tartar sauce, in a bowl.
  4. Beat with a hand beater until batter is smooth and thin. (If batter is too thick, stir in additional beer, 1 tablespoon at a time, until of desired consistency.).
  5. Dip shrimp into batter, letting excess drip into bowl.
  6. Place shrimp in hot oil and fry about 2 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  7. Sprinkle with coconut and serve hot with tartar sauce.
