Coconut Beer Batter Fried Shrimp with Pineapple Salsa

2 eggs
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup beer
One tablespoon baking powder
2 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
coconut oil
3 cups grated coconut

Seasoning mix:

One tablespoon capsicum pepper
2-1/4 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1-1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1-1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Thoroughly combine the constituents for the seasoning mix in a smaller bowl and hang aside.

Mix 1-1/4 glasses of the flour, two teaspoons of the seasoning mix, baking powder, eggs, and beer together in the bowl, breaking apart all lumps until it’s smooth.

Combine the rest of the flour with 1-1/2 teaspoons of the seasoning mix and hang up aside. Place the coconut in a very separate bowl.

Sprinkle both sides from the shrimps with the remainder of the seasoning mix. Then hold each shrimp by the tail, dredge in flour mixture, get rid of excess, dip in batter and enable excess to drip off. Coat each shrimp together with the coconut and set on a baking sheet.

Heat deep fryer to 350°F. Drop each shrimp into the hot oil and cook until golden brown, approximately 1/2 to at least one minute on either side. Do not crowd the fryer. Drain in some recoverable format towels and serve immediately.
