Healthy Hors D'oeuvre: Baked Coconut Shrimp

Even though it may be freezing where you are, your taste buds deserve a quick trip to the tropics, and this appetizer will get rave reviews. Typically served with a sweet and spicy Asian sauce, this version is paired with something a little creamier and with less sugar. And the dip uses one of the most versatile ingredients out there: Greek yogurt! Full of protein, good-for-you probiotics, and calcium, Greek yogurt should be a staple in any healthy fridge.

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.
  3. Combine the coconut, panko, and flour in a bowl or baking dish.
  4. Beat the egg whites in a medium bowl until slightly frothy.
