Coconut Shrimp And Mango Salsa Salad

Coconut Shrimp And Mango Salsa Salad

Want to crunch up your usual salad? Add some crunchy and addictive coconut shrimp mixed with a sweet and spicy salsa filled with mango and jalapeno! While these shrimp are perfect to top off a salad, they’re so good that they could also be served as an appetizer, too.

How do we get that crunchy coconut coating? It’s all about the layers! The first layer to dip our shrimp into is the coconut flour. Coconut flour has a slightly sweet flavor and is also great for baking. While almond flour is a popular alternative to coconut flour, almond flour can often taste a lot like almonds, while coconut is more subtle. The next layer of egg whites provides the sticking ground for the last layer — coconut flakes!

Dice up your mangos and salsa ingredients for a refreshing salsa addition! Have extra mango salsa? Just toss in the refrigerator and top your burger, chicken or pork dishes with a scoop of salsa!
