Coconut Shrimp

1 cup beer , flat
1 cup self-rising flour
2 cups coconut flakes, (1 – 7oz. package)
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 jumbo shrimp
dash paprika
For the batter, use an electric mixer to combine the beer, flour, 1/2 cup coconut flakes, sugar and salt in medium sized bowl.  Mix well and refrigerate, covered for at least one hour.
Prepare marmalade sauce, refrigerate.
Prepare the shrimp by de-veining and peeling off the shell back to the tail.  Leave the last segment of the shell plus the tail fins as a handle. When batter is ready, preheat oil in a deep pot or deep fryer to about 350 degrees.  Use enough oil to completely cover the shrimp.  Pour the remainder of the coconut into a shallow bowl. Be sure the shrimp are dry before battering.  Sprinkle each shrimp lightly with paprika before the next step.  Dip one shrimp at a time into the batter, coating generously.  Drop battered shrimp into the coconut and roll around so it is well coated. Fry four shrimp at a time for 2-3 minutes or until the shrimp become golden brown.  You may have to flip the shrimp over halfway through cooking time.  Drain on paper towels briefly before serving.

Serve with marmalade sauce.
