  1. Set up three bowls. The coconut flour goes in the first, the egg in the second, and the coconut in the third. Line a plate with paper towels and set aside.
  2. Preparing the shrimp one at a time, toss the shrimp in the flour, then dip in the egg. Once the excess egg has dripped off, dip the shrimp in the coconut. Press the coconut into the shrimp well.
  3. In a pan, pour enough oil to deep fry the shrimp. Once heated, fry the shrimp for 1-2 minutes and remove with a slotted spoon. Place the fried shrimp on the plate with paper towels.
  4. While still warm, squeeze a generous amount of lime over the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.
