I am not much of a seafood person, but i love anything shrimp! This is  one of two recipes I made this past weekend to try out, both came out delicious. My hopes with each new recipe will allow people to see you can eat what you love and it still be healthy! One meal at a time I will do this!!! LOL my 3 year old ate the raw (cooked) shrimp he couldn’t wait for me to even get them finished! I also made a dipping sauce similar to the sauce Bonefish Grill uses for their Bang-Bang Shrimp! Its delicious and was the perfect football sunday food!

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

If the shrimp are wet pat dry so the batter sticks

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg whites and the coconut oil

In a separate mixing bowl , whisk together coconut flakes, bread crumbs, garlic and onion powder

Drop the shrimp in the egg whites and give them a good stir

Pick them out and place in the coconut /bread crumb mixture

Shake them around until they are coated,  place them individually on a parchment lined cookie sheet
