Step 1:

Peel the shrimp, leaving the tails on. Rinse and pat dry. In a mortar and pestle or with the back of a skillet grind the red pepper until it resembles a coarse pepper.

Step 2:

In a shallow bowl, mix shredded coconut, flour, salt, and the red pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet. Whisk the egg in a bowl with a little bit of water.

Step 3:

Dip each shrimp in the egg mixture and coat it lightly with the red pepper-coconut mixture. Fry for about two minutes on one side and another minute on the other side, or until golden brown and crispy.
