  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Mango, Pitted, Peeled, Cubed
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Teaspoon Fresh Ginger, Grated
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Fresh Mint, Chopped
  • 1 Medium Jalapeno Pepper, Seeded, Minced
  • 18 Large Shrimp, Raw, Peeled, Deveined, Tail On
  • 3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • 1/3 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs

We’re going to make the dipping sauce first. We’ll cut up half the mango, combine the lime juice, ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a blender and process until the mixture is smooth. You can also use a food processor if you like, whatever you have on hand will work!
Pour that mixture into a small bowl and set it aside while you cut up the remaining half of the mango. Add the puree we just made, the mint, diced jalapeño pepper, and some water together in a bowl and mix. You can also toss everything into the blender and process the mixture completely smooth. Whatever you prefer will work fine.
Use just enough water to make it saucy, not too much, use the water to create your desired thickness for the dipping sauce.
Now let’s start on the shrimp. Spread the cornstarch out on some wax paper. Mix the eggs in a large bowl until frothy. In another bowl, mix together the coconut, panko breadcrumbs, and 3/4 teaspoon of salt, pour those onto another sheet of wax paper.
Dredge the shrimp in the cornstarch first, shake off the excess and then dip them into the egg before pressing the shrimp into the coconut mixture on both sides.
Put the shrimp onto a wire rack and spray on both sides with non stick spray before putting them into the basket of the air fryer.
Preheat the air fryer to 400°F, add the shrimp to the air fryer in a single layer and cook them for about 6 minutes. They should be golden brown and crispy on the outside! Serve the shrimp with the dipping sauce and lime wedges to squeeze on top!
