    In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Dip each shrimp into eggs, then into Bisquick mixture; dip again in eggs and in Bisquick mixture. Cook shrimp in batches in hot oil about 3 to 4 minutes, turning once, until coating is crisp and golden brown and shrimp are pink. Drain on paper towels.

    Serve shrimp hot with dipping sauce.

  • If you’re in a hurry, skip the dipping sauce and serve the shrimp with purchased sweet-and-sour sauce, available in the Asian foods section of most grocery stores.
  • These coconut shrimp pair beautifully with brown rice and a tropical fruit salad.
