Healthy Coconut Shrimp Recipe

Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
6 tablespoons plain panko breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
2 large egg whites
1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined, and patted dry
Salt and fresh pepper

For dipping sauce:
1/4 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon ancho chili powder

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. To make the dipping sauce, combine all Greek yogurt, lime juice, and chili powder in a small bowl. Set aside in the refrigerator.
