You can make coconut shrimp that is just as tasty as what you order in a restaurant at home in your air fryer. It's easy to do.
This is my low-carb, keto-friendly recipe for coconut shrimp in your air fryer. Make it for a main dish or appetizer.
This recipe is made to be low carb and keto-friendly because I like to eat a lot of shrimp and don't want to feel guilty about it.
You can easily adapt this recipe to a standard recipe by using all-purpose flour in place of the coconut flour and replacing the crushed pork rinds with panko bread crumbs.
I like to serve my coconut shrimp with a choice of sauces. Purchase a Thai chili sauce in the Asian foods section of your grocery store. It will be a little sweet with a little heat. This will not be a low-carb
The other sauce I like is just a mixture of mayonnaise and sriracha sauce. The amounts are just to your taste. This is a low-carb sauce option.
