  • In a blender, combine mayonnaise, cubed mango, honey, sriracha, curry powder, salt, lemon juice, and cilantro. Blend until smooth and refrigerate.

  • Fill a Dutch oven or deep frying pan with about 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil. Heat the oil until it reaches a temperature between 350°F (175°C) and 375°F (190°C), ensuring it's hot enough for frying the shrimp to a perfect crisp.

  • Set up a breading station with three plates – one with breadcrumbs, one with beaten eggs seasoned with salt and pepper, and one with shredded coconut. Dredge each shrimp in breadcrumbs, then in egg, and finally in coconut.

  • Once oil is hot, fry shrimp in batches for about 2 minutes or until golden and crispy.

  • Drain fried shrimp and serve with the chilled spicy mango dipping sauce. Enjoy your tropical feast!


  1. Oil Temperature: Monitoring the oil temperature is crucial. Too hot, and your shrimp will burn. Too cold, and they can turn soggy. Aim for a temperature between 350°F (175°C) and 375°F (190°C).

  2. Shrimp Preparation: Ensure the shrimp are peeled, deveined, and thoroughly dried before you begin the breading process for best results.

  3. Breading Station: For an organized and efficient breading process, prepare your station with one plate of breadcrumbs, one plate of beaten eggs, and one plate of shredded coconut.

  4. Frying in Batches: Avoid overcrowding the pan when frying the shrimp. This helps to maintain the oil temperature and prevents the shrimp from sticking together.

  5. Sauce Adjustments: Feel free to adjust the dipping sauce to taste. Add more honey for sweetness, or extra sriracha for heat.
