June 10, 2013


1 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup beer

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon Arrogant Bastard Oaked Ale Chipotle Hot Sauce

2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled

and deveined

1 cup vegetable oil for frying


Beat flour, beer, egg, Arrogant Bastard Oaked Ale Chipotle Hot Sauce and salt in a bowl with an electric mixer on low until batter is smooth. Spread coconut flakes in a shallow dish. Dip shrimp into beer batter, shaking off excess, then press into coconut. Place shrimp onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking, 3 to 4 minutes. Fry about a third of the shrimp in the hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Allow shrimp to drain on a wire rack set over paper towels. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
