This stunning and easy appetizer is sure to impress your guests. Not to mention it's way healthier than breaded shrimp that's usually tossed in the fryer. Be sure to get unsweetened (rather than sweetened!) shredded coconut to avoid unnecessary calories.

2. Combine flour and shredded coconut in a small bowl.
3. Season shrimp with salt and pepper
4. Beat the egg whites in a medium bowl until foamy.
5. Add shrimp to egg whites and toss to coat.
6. Working with one shrimp at a time, add to coconut mixture and press crumb mixture to coat.
