Crispy Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

Want to make a crispy air fryer coconut shrimp dish for your staycation this summer? Sometimes it’s hard to get away to a tropical vacation. As a travel and food blogger, I am very fortunate to discover different types of cuisines from all over the world. With this, I love sharing these healthy and delicious ways to eat. Since I will be heading out to the island of Nevis in this coming week, I felt inspired to create a Caribbean inspired dish that’s low carb and keto-friendly but also taste delicious. Check out this recipe to make you feel like you are island hopping.

coconut-shrimp-2

Ingredients:

  • 10 pieces of raw medium-size wild-caught shrimp, deveined with the tail on
  • 1/2 tsp organic black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp organic sea salt
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp organic cayenne pepper (depending on your heat preference)
  • 1 tsp of organic lime juice
  • 1 cup of organic coconut flour
  • 1 cup of organic coconut milk
  • 1 cup of organic shredded coconut flakes

 

Directions

Mix the shrimp with the black pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and sea salt. Let it marinate for 10-30 min in the fridge.

Lightly coat the entire raw shrimp in the coconut flour; this will help absorb more coconut milk.

Quickly dip each shrimp in the coconut milk. Shake off any excess liquid.

Press the coconut flakes onto all sides of the shrimp

Place into the air fryer for 10 min at 400°F (204°C); feel free to add an extra 1-2 min to make it extra crispy.

And you’re done. Easy, right?

 What I love about this crispy air fryer coconut shrimp recipe is that it’s low carb and tastes like a tropical getaway. The coconut coating provides for a crunch that’s the opposite of the tenderness of the shrimp on the inside. I also wanted to include additional flavors of cayenne for a slight kick and lime juice for a citrusy complement to the seafood. But my favorite condiment for air fried dishes is ketchup. It’s the one condiment that rounds out all the flavor for this dish with its sweet flavor. My latest discovery has been Hunt’s Best Ever Ketchup, which is non-GMO and has no high fructose syrup (the sweetness comes from the sugar cane and California grown tomatoes). If you are looking for an alternative to the standard bottles of ketchup, check out this site (click HERE) to read more about this ketchup. Thanks again, Hunt’s for sponsoring this post.

Enjoy!

How to cook crispy low carb jicama french fries

Want to learn how to how to cook crispy low carb jicama french fries without all the oil and grease?

While some people have a sweet tooth, my body craves carbs. I love plates of pasta, slices of bread, pizzas, and fries. But I don’t love is the way that these tasty, yet decadent foods make me feel hours or days after I consume them. Often times I would feel sluggish or bloated. After years of finally feeling fed up with feeling this way, I started my weight-loss journey. I started to eat lower carbs or keto-friendly foods. Through research and speaking to fellow foodies about more low carb friendly french fry substitutes, I found many recipes online. However, I created a recipe gourmet like ones that you would find at a nice steak house.

Here is my easy recipe for crispy low carb jicama french fries with garlic, parmesan cheese, and parsley.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of sliced organic raw jicama (~ 1/4″ thick – same shape as french fries)
  • 1 tsp of sea salt (for taste – optional)
  • 1/2 tsp of organic ground black pepper (for taste – optional)
  • 1 tsp of organic garlic powder
  • 1-2 tbsp of organic avocado oil
  • 1 tsp of grated pecorino or parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp of chopped fresh Italian parsley

 

crispy low carb jicama fries

Ingredients include: jicama, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and parsley

Instructions:

Gently mix all the ingredients together. I prefer to use avocado oil because it has a higher smoke point compared to olive oil, so it will help make the French fries more crispy.

Carefully place about 1-1.5 cups of the raw jicama French fries in the air fryer. I don’t suggest to overload the air-fryer basket so each piece can cook as evenly as possible.

Turn on the air fryer to 325°F (162.778°C) for about 25 minutes. To make ensure that each French fry is evenly cooked, I would toss the fries around the basket every 10-15 min. Feel free to cook up to 30 min, if you like your low carb French fries fried to a deep golden crisp.

To add more layers of flavor, I also added grated cheese (to add a bit more saltiness) and minced parsley (for a fresh pop of flavor) on top.

Repeat the instructions above until you have cooked all 3 cups of the jicama.

And of course, I have to eat my low carb garlic jicama French fries with ketchup. I recently made a new discovery of Hunt’s Best Ever ketchup, which is Non-GMO and doesn’t contain high fructose sugar. This condiment does have fresh tomatoes grown my home state of California and uses sugar cane. If you want to check out the video version of this recipe, click HERE.

Enjoy!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Holiday Side Dish

*Post sponsored by Real California Milk, but recipe and opinions are my own.

Another easy side dish recipe for this holiday season is my roasted brussels sprouts with crispy turkey bacon and Real California cotija cheese. As much as I love the taste of pork bacon, I like that the turkey bacon has less fat. Inspired by my recent trip to Mexico, I wanted to include one of my new favorite Mexican-style cheeses: cotija. It is a nice complement to many savory warm dishes or cold salads that need a bit of salty flavor. I also like that this cheese crumbles like feta and can be a great substitute for your Greek salad. Check out this easy recipe:

Ingredients:

1.5 lbs. brussels sprouts (cut in halves)
3 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
6 oz. of turkey bacon – 8-10 pieces
3 oz. of Real California Milk cotija cheese (crumbled)
1-2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze

img_8687-3

Direction:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F
  2. Lightly toss together olive oil, salt, and black pepper with the brussels sprouts on a non-stick pan
  3. Bake for 30-40 min until the sprouts are tender and dark green or a toasted brown in appearance
  4. For the turkey bacon, lightly coat your skillet with cooking spray and turn the stove to medium heat.
  5. Place strips in skillet for 4 min on each side until fully cooked; longer if you want it more crispy
  6. Transfer the strips onto a paper towel and let cool
  7. Cut the bacon strips in 1/2 inch pieces
  8. Mix the bacon and balsamic vinegar together with the brussels sprouts
  9. Sprinkle the cotija cheese on top of the dish

Did you know California is the country’s leading producer of Hispanic-style cheeses? The state produces more than 25 varieties and styles of Hispanic-style cheeses bearing the Real California Milk seal.
