Servings 12 Shrimps



  • 12 Pieces Shrimps with Tail On
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1 Egg Egg
  • 1/4 Cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1/4 Cup Crushed Unflavored Pork Rinds about 1oz


  • 4 tbsp Kewpie Mayo
  • 1 tsp Swerve or Monkfruit
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Stalk Green Onion


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 400F, line baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with cooking oil.
  • Peel and prepare shrimp as needed (keep tail on). Dry with paper towel. Once dried, sprinkle pepper on both sides.
  • Open bag of pork rinds but don't pour out. Using your hands, crush all the rinds to mimic the texture of bread crumbs (it will take a while to ensure all rinds are crushed). You can also use a food processor which will get you finer pieces (our preferred method).
  • Fill 1 mixing bowl with almond flour, 1 mixing bowl with an egg, and 1 mixing bowl with a mix of the crushed pork rinds and shredded coconuts (mix well).
  • Mix eggs.
  • In this order, dip and coat each shrimp: almond flour > eggs > crushed pork rinds/shredded coconuts. Once coated, place onto baking sheet.
  • Place baking sheet on middle rack and bake for 15-17 minutes until crust is golden brown.
  • In the meantime, finely chop green onions and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine Kewpie mayo, Swerve, Sriracha, a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well, top with green onions and set aside.
  • Serve with dipping sauce.
