Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites whisked
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 450 g jumbo shrimp (about 25), peeled (tail-on), deveined and patted dry
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup mango chutney
Sweet Potato Fries:
  • 2 sweet potatoes (about 750 g), peeled and cut in scant 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick sticks
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper

Method

Sweet Potato Fries: Toss together sweet potatoes, oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Arrange in single layer on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 425 F (220 C) oven, turning once, until tender and light golden, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, in shallow bowl, whisk together egg whites, pepper and salt. In separate shallow bowl, stir together panko, coconut and flour. Holding by tail, dip 1 shrimp in egg mixture, shaking off excess. Dip in panko mixture, turning to coat and pressing to adhere. Repeat with remaining shrimp.

In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat; cook half of the shrimp, turning once, until golden, about 6 minutes. Repeat with remaining oil and shrimp. Serve with sweet potato fries and mango chutney.
