Party Panache, Coconut Shrimp with Raspberry Jalapeno and Orange Marmalade Sauce

Over the Memorial Day weekend we made one of our favorite beach meals, Coconut Shrimp Tempura.

We rarely fry anything, but this shrimp is literally worth a splurge~

We always serve it with Orange marmalade dipping sauce

But to make it a little more patriotic, I decided to make another sauce too…

This is Raspberry Jalapeno Sauce, and yes it is a little pink, but trust me, it is FABULOUS with the sweet, crunchy coconut shrimp

We had friends stop by for drinks a few nights before and they brought us this jar of Raspberry Jalapeno Jam, with some cream cheese and crackers.  Now that was delicious of course, but I had quite a bit of the jam left…so I mixed in a little sour cream to cut the heat a bit and to smooth it out.  DIVINE!

I must admit, I bypassed the orange sauce this time and had my shrimp with the Raspberry Jalapeno sauce and it was soooo good.  Now I must find out where they got this jam because I definitely want some more!  Any flavor pepper jelly should work though, it will be fun to experiment.

We fry the shrimp in batches and it holds quite nicely in a 200 degree oven until you are ready to serve.  For complete instructions and photos, please click here:  Coconut Shrimp with Orange Marmalade dipping sauce

Coconut Shrimp Tempura with Orange Marmalade Glaze

The best shrimp ever!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Course Appetizer, condiment, Main Course
Cuisine Seafood, Southern

Ingredients
  

Coconut Shrimp

  • 6-8 medium shrimp per person peeled and deveined
  • 1 or more boxes Tempura batter I use McCormick
  • shredded coconut
  • peanut oil for frying

Orange Marmalade Glaze

  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 dashes soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard

Instructions
 

Coconut Shrimp

  • Make Tempura batter in a deep bowl according to directions on box [be sure to use ICE water, it’s the secret to the light batter]. 1 box makes enough batter for about 2 lbs shrimp.
  • Put some coconut in another bowl, reserving some for adding later to keep the coconut dry.
  • Dredge shrimp in batter and roll in coconut.
  • Fry in batches in medium hot oil, about 400 degrees, 3-5 minutes, until golden. Remove and drain on paper towels and keep warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.

Orange Marmalade Glaze

  • Mix all ingredients together and taste.  Add more soy or mustard if desired.  Makes enough to serve 4-6. Increase amounts for more servings if necessary

    Your shrimp sound wonderful Jenna along with both dipping sauces! We’re fans of pepper jelly. Love your serving pieces, your PB shell is wonderful and perfect for a seaside setting!

  2. It all sounds good, the painted martini glass is a delight.

  3. This looks awesome Jenna! And I keep meaning to make coconut shrimp! Both sauces look like they would be excellent with it.

  4. I LOVE the fish pitcher! It would go amazingly well with my F&F “Coquilles” dishes (and I imagine yours as well). Great table, and delicious looking shrimp!

    I have to try this. I also need to ask my niece about the raspberry jam. She makes the best pepper jelly so I wonder if she could whip up something for me.

    I have never made coconut shrimp but I love it!
