Christina's Voice:
This would be the Traditions gold label standard Virgin Coconut oil that i use to help cook my Coconut Fried Shrimp. I just replaced the vegetable oil with the virgin coconut oil and yummy!!! I have provided the ingredients and how to cook below. for other great recipes using the Virgin coconut oil click here


Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Stir in water and oil until smooth. Place coconut in another bowl. Dip shrimp into batter, then coat with coconut.
  • In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry shrimp, a few at a time, for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • In a small saucepan, heat marmalade and honey; stir until blended. Serve with shrimp. Yield: 4 servings.

  22. I love coconut oil. I use it for all my baking and cooking needs. I use it a lot for pan frying potatoes for breakfast on the weekends and deep frying panko breaded tofu for dinner. I know I would use it for that!
