  • 8 large Shrimp
  • ½ cup sweetened coconut
  • ¼ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup flour all purpose
  • oil of choice for spritzing


  • Combine the panko and coconut in a shallow tray. Lightly beat the egg in a small bowl. Add the flour to a small bowl. Thaw your shrimp if needed.
  • Preheat the Ninja Foodi on Broil or preheat your air fryer on the highest temperature setting for 10 minutes. Make sure the basket is inside during the preheating.
  • Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tail on. Dip the shrimp into the flour so it has a light coating. Dip into the egg and then coat with the panko and coconut mixture. Set aside until all are coated.
  • Spritz the basket with the oil of your choice and lay the shrimp in a single layer on the bottom of the basket. Spritz the top of the shrimp with oil. Put the TenderCrisp lid and set the Air Crisp to 375°F/190°C. Air Crisp for about 4 minutes and Flip. Spritz again with oil and Air Crisp an additional 2-4 minutes. Decrease your temperature if the coconut is getting too brown.
  • Serve & Enjoy!
