HG's Sweet Coconut Crunch Shrimp
HG's Sweet Coconut Crunch Shrimp

Bigtime Shrimp!
Once you start popping these sweet-n-crispy shrimp, you're not gonna be able to stop. Good thing they're guilt-free...

Ingredients:
1/4 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
1/3 cup shredded sweetened coconut
3 tbsp. panko breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp. chili powder 
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. black pepper
Dash salt
12 oz. (about 20) raw large shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails removed
3 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)

HG Tip! If your coconut shreds are somewhat long, give 'em a rough chop!

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place cereal in a sealable plastic bag and, removing as much air as possible, seal. Using a meat mallet or heavy can, carefully crush cereal through the bag. Add sweetened coconut, panko breadcrumbs, chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt to the bag; seal and shake to mix. Transfer mixture to a large plate and set aside.

Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside. Pat shrimp with paper towels to ensure they are completely dry.

Combine shrimp with egg substitute in a bowl and toss lightly to coat. One at a time, shake excess egg from shrimp and transfer to the coconut-crumb mixture, gently patting and flipping to coat. Evenly place coated shrimp on the baking sheet.

Bake in the oven for 10 - 12 minutes, until outsides are crispy and lightly browned and insides are cooked through. Serve and enjoy!

Are You 'NUTS??
Deep-fried shrimp are dangerous, people. (We've been over this before.) For starters, they're FRIED. How can the situation get MORE irresistible? Add something sweet and addictively delicious to the equation. Now you're faced with one of the hardest-to-resist foods around: COCONUT SHRIMP. And (like most finger foods) it's easy to eat a LOT of 'em. But just say no! Five of those deep-fried sea critters will cost you close to 400 calories and more than 20 grams of fat. YIKERS! Wait... before you give up on the deliciousness of sweet, sweet coconut shrimp, check out our recipe and whip up a batch in your kitchen. Our version has all the things we LOVE about restaurant types (the crunch and the coconut) without all the stuff we DON'T love about 'em (um, the FAT and crazy-high calorie counts). How exotic!
