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!
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).
Shrimp Preparation: Ensure the shrimp are peeled, deveined, and thoroughly dried before you begin the breading process for best results.
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.
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.
Sauce Adjustments: Feel free to adjust the dipping sauce to taste. Add more honey for sweetness, or extra sriracha for heat.
