How To Make Keto Pan Fried Coconut Shrimp

First, you need to heat the coconut oil for frying, so in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat add about 2 inches of coconut oil.

You want to make sure the oil is hot (about 350 F) before adding the shrimp. If you don’t have a way to check the temperature you can test it by getting your hand wet and flicking the water on the oil, it should kind of sizzle.

Once the coconut oil is hot place your shrimp in the oil and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, the shrimp cook quickly so don’t let them cook too long.
