FOR THE COCONUT SHRIMP
1lb Shrimp, deveined and peeled with tails left on

FOR THE SWEET CHILI DIPPING SAUCE
2 tsp Water
1 tsp Cornstarch
1 Tbsp Ketchup
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
¼ Cup Pineapple Juice
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Pat shrimp dry with paper towels; season with sea salt.
Create a breading station with three shallow bowls. In the first bowl add the flour, the second bowl combine the egg whites with the Chipotle Lime Rub & Seasoning, and in the third bowl combine the shredded coconut and panko.
Dip each shrimp in the flour, then egg whites, then panko and lay on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake 10- 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile in a small saucepan over high heat whisk together the water and cornstarch until the corn starch is no longer lumpy. Then add the ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar, and juice. Bring to a boil and let sauce reduce about 4-5 minutes until thickened.
Serve with fresh cilantro, lemon wedges, and Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce.
