Sweet Chili Sauce

Coconut Shrimp


  1. In a small saucepan over low heat whisk together rice vinegar, 1/4 cup water, brown sugar and sambal oelek. Bring the mixture to a low boil and turn to simmer.  Mix 1 tablespoon water and cornstarch.  Whisk it into the chili sauce mixture and cook until slightly thickened; approximately 2-3 minutes.
  2. Arrange 3 shallow bowls in a row. In the first bowl whisk together the flour, pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne.  In the second bowl lightly beat the eggs.  In the third bowl mix together the sweetened coconut flakes and panko bread crumbs.
  3. Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in a heavy skillet or dutch oven to 375 degrees. Dredge the shrimp in the flour mixture, then in the eggs and finally in the coconut/panko mixture.  Drop into the oil and cook until golden brown flipping halfway through the cooking process; approximately 3 minutes.    Remove to paper towels to drain.  Serve warm with the Sweet Chili Sauce.
