Low Carb Coconut Fried Shrimp
When I bought shrimp that wasn't cooked, after a while, I decided to check out some recipes to find out what I can make with it. When I did a google search, I found some great looking recipes for fried coconut shrimp. Also, I searched YouTube on how to make coconut fried shrimp and I came across an interesting and delicious coconut fried shrimp recipe that is low in carbohydrates so I decided to make it. The recipe was very easy to make with only coconut flour, a couple of eggs and some salt, pepper and a spice of crushed red pepper with fresh coconut flakes. Also, I used coconut oil for frying.
After I made the coconut fried shrimp, it had a coconut flavor to it with the coconut flour and fresh coconut flakes. I have only had fried shrimp in restaurants but the coconut fried shrimp I made tasted better than the fried shrimp in restaurants. Also, when I checked my blood sugar it didn't go up but was within normal range, which I liked. These crispy, fried shrimp tasted sweet and tender like in restaurants. They were easy on my stomach and easier to digest too. You don't have to stay away from your favorite foods, there are many things you can eat, and you just need to know what ingredients to use to make foods lower in fat.
