Red Lobster's Pina Colada Shrimp
Absolute dream! Now you can make delicious Pina Colada Shrimp just like Red Lobster makes. A truly delicious meal!
Prepare pina colada dipping sauce by combining all ingredients. Sour cream, pina colada mix, crushed pineapple and granulated sugar. Cover & chill.
Heat oil to 350 degrees in a deep fryer or a large heavy skillet.
Measure 3/4 cup of flour into a medium bowl.
In another medium bowl mix together the remaining 3/4 cup flour, sugar, and salt. Stir milk and rum into flour mixture. Let this batter stand for five minutes.
In the meantime, combine panko breadcrumbs and shredded coconut into a third bowl.
Butterfly cut each peeled shrimp before you start the battering- leaving the tail intact.
Dip each shrimp once in the flour, then the wet batter, and then coat each shrimp with the panko/coconut mixture. Place the shrimp on a plate until all of them are battered.
Fry shrimp by dropping one at a time into the hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until the shrimp are golden brown. Only fry a few shrimp at a time. Remove shrimp to paper towels to drain.
Serve shrimp with pina colada dipping sauce or shrimp cocktail sauce along with salsa.
