Coconut Shrimp with Japanese Spicy Mayo Sauce


I happened to be scrolling through Pinterest ‘s feed the other day when I came across a pin for Coconut Shrimp.  It was golden brown sprinkled with coconut flakes with an accompanying cocktail glass and little tropical umbrella sticking out, and that’s what got me!

I knew the second I saw that tropical umbrella, we were going to make our version of Coconut Shrimp with a Japanese Spicy Mayo Sauce!  We’ll do anything that reminds us of a tropical island – life goals!

I’ve actually never made Coconut Shrimp before, so I had to do some research to see how the traditional ones were made.

From there, we took the base idea of the coconut crusted shrimp and used the spicy mayo sauce from our Keto Ebi Fry and Keto Sriracha Shrimp Bacon Roll to make this dish and it came out great!

The coconut crust offers the subtle sweetness that the traditional dish is known for and the accompanying sauce offers a balanced spicy creaminess that really adds to the shrimp!

So we start this recipe the same as any crusting recipe, which consists of seasoning the meat and dunking it in a flour, egg, bread crumb bath.  But since this is a low-carb/keto version, we replace the flour with almond flour and the bread crumbs with crushed unflavored pork rinds.

Now, since we’re making a coconut crust as well, we go ahead and mix some shredded coconuts with the crushed unflavored pork rinds and then throw that all in the oven.

Next up, we make the sauce by mixing some Kewpie mayo, Sriracha, and Swerve/Monkfruit.  Once the shrimp is done, dip it in the sauce, and the most important part, close your eyes and imagine your eating this somewhere in the tropical Pacific!

All this at only ~0.5g net carbs per piece of shrimp makes it for a great low-carb/keto seafood dinner!

    Love your recipes! I’m having a problem printing just the recipe without the pictures, any suggestions?
    My new printer does not allow me to select individual pages.

      Great to hear you are enjoying our recipes!! I think the best way to do it would be use Microsoft Word and use the command ‘special paste’. Copy the direction portion and under Microsoft Word edit menu, there should be an option for special paste. From there, select unformatted text which will only paste the text. Hope that helps!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      FYI – we updated our recipes so they all now contain a recipe card with a print it option! Hope that helps you out!

  2. Thank You!!!!! That is GREAT NEWS!
