  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Avocado oil for spraying

Notes

Tips for air frying:

  • Use tongs to carefully flip them half way through so that you don't lose any of the breading
  • Spray with additional oil as needed to help the shrimp get to a light golden brown
