That’s Southern for bean bag toss

Gotta do some warm ups…

This is big at tailgate parties during football season, and great to play just about anywhere

The bags are full of dried beans or corn

When it’s your turn you get 4 bags to try to toss into the hole in the slanted boards

You have to develop your own technique and have a little attitude…

and develop a little tossing rhythm

Ready?

Dad is my coach…he built and painted the boards to match Gigi’s decor.  My daddy is very smart…

Coconut Shrimp Tempura with Raspberry Jalapeno and Orange Marmalade Dipping Sauces

  • Servings: varied
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

6-8 medium shrimp per person, peeled and deveined

1 or more boxes Tempura batter, I use McCormick

shredded coconut

peanut oil for frying

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 Sauce

1 cup Orange Marmalade

2 dashes soy sauce

1 T Dijon mustard

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

Raspberry Jalapeno Sauce

6 oz Raspberry Jalapeno Jam, or any flavor pepper jelly

2-4 oz light sour cream

Combine sour cream to jam or jelly, stirring well and tasting until ratio is desirable.

Makes enough to serve 4-6.

Enjoy!

    I do believe this girl’s got the knack and by the time she goes to her first tailgate, she’ll blow everyone away. If she takes along your shrimp, she’ll really be a hit!

    I’m not wild about the texture of coconut (I know, one of “THOSE” people) but for some reason, I’m guessing that frying the shrimp kind of reduces the grassy feeling. I do love the FLAVOR of coconut, so maybe it’s time I give it a try!
