1 Prepare Coconut Shrimp Breading Station

Set out 3 plates, on first plate, empty & spread out GF flour. On second plate, whisk egg & a splash of water until foamy. On third plate, empty & spread out GF panko blend. 

Working with a couple of shrimp at a time, dredge in the flour, then dip it in the egg, & finally roll in panko mixture making sure to coat the shrimp well. Place on prepared medium-sized lined & greased sheet pan & repeat with the remaining shrimp.

2Bake Shrimp

Bake shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside & the meat is no longer transparent in the centre & the coconut is browned, approximately 20 minutes, flipping the shrimp halfway through.

3Make Slaw

While shrimp continue to roast, prepare slaw. Thinly slice cabbage & mango, grate carrots & chop herbs. Combine all in a large bowl, add a drizzle of olive oil & the slaw dressing. Season with salt & pepper. Toss & place in the fridge.

4Make Cheesy Tortillas

While shrimp continues to bake, place tortillas on large sheet pan. Evenly top with cheese; season with salt & pepper. Bake 3 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. 

5Assemble Tacos & Serve

Assemble the tacos using the cheesy tortillas, slaw, baked shrimp & top with sweet chili, mango sauce & avocado crema. Sprinkle with remaining green onion.
