    Default Coconut Shrimp

    DH loves coconut shrimp. I make it 2 or 3 times a year for him as a
    special treat.

    Instead of making a regular batter, I use Maple Grove Farms sugar-free
    pancake and waffle mix. For 17 medium sized shrimp (7 per person) I use
    half of the 6 pancake recipe on the box with one additional tablespoon
    of water added. The 14 shrimp use less than half of this batter, but I
    can't halve an egg, so I throw out the left over batter.

    Using an electric skillet with about 3/4" of canola oil at 350 F. I
    first dip the shrimp in the pancake batter then into unsweetened, flaked
    coconut. Fry on one side for a minute or two then flip with tongs.
    Drain well on paper toweling.

    I make a dipping sauce from sugar-free apricot preserves and Dijon mustard.

    The side dish was Mexican calabesa squash (like zucchini) sauteed with
    onion, garlic, an orange bell pepper, a can of fire roasted diced
    tomato, a little red wine and some rosemary, basil, freshly ground black
    pepper and freshly grated Romano cheese (adds flavor and salt).

    With the sauce we were under 30 grams for the entire dinner. Without the
    dipping sauce we'd save 10 more.

    The Maple Grove Farms pancake mix is nice for things that you want to
    batter and fry without adding a lot of extra carbs. Thought I'd pass
    this along.

    Sounds yummy Janet. I'd probably have to go to a health food store to
    find sugar free mix.

    I forgot to add, what is particularly nice with prawns, even just plain
    cooked ones, is pureed mango mixed with dijonaisse.

    Fish, zucchini, cauliflower, mushrooms...

    It's not that hot here. We are at our "normal" summer temps of low to
    mid 90's during the day and mid to high 70's at night. We get the breeze
    from the Gulf of Mexico most of the day so it doesn't feel as hot.
    Haven't had any rain so it's not humid.

    Dallas is awful, but we're hundreds of miles away. It's been hotter in
    Minnesota than here.

    We were in Russia for a couple of weeks then I went to Houston with a
    friend who was having surgery as her husband is in a nursing home from
    a stroke and her grown children evaporated. Going on an RV trip to
    Utah, Idaho and Wyoming in a fee weeks.

    That would be lovely. We have lots of mangos now, but I think the peak
    has passed as the guys selling them off the trucks on the roadsides are
    gone. I think they are hawking watermelon now. I would just use plain
    Dijon to save some fat.

    That sounds real good, Janet! Must be something you can do with the
    leftover pancake batter. Breakfast pancakes? Just told Jun about your idea.
    She says, "Good! I will make for us." She's always grating fresh coconut
    meat and she just bought a box of pancake mix to make some steamed dim sum.
