Tampa Boys Cedar Planked Coconut Shrimp (serves 4)


  • Big Green Egg at 400 degrees, direct


  • 1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1/3 cup corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon Meat Church Season All
  • 3/4 teaspoon Pork U Fire Drill
  • 2 cups flaked, sweetened coconut
  • 3 egg whites, beaten until foamy
  • 1 cedar plank



Soak the plank for at least 30 minutes in water before using.

Preheat the BGE to 400 degrees, direct.

Rinse and dry shrimp with paper towels. Mix cornstarch, Season All and Fire Drill in a shallow bowl. Pour coconut flakes in a separate shallow bowl.

Working with one shrimp at a time, dredge it in the cornstarch mixture, then dip it in the egg white, and roll it in the coconut, making sure to coat the shrimp well. Place on the cedar plank, and repeat with the remaining shrimp.



Bake the shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center and the coconut is browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
