2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the cucumber salad

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; thinly slice the cucumber.
  • Thinly slice the radishes.

In a medium bowl, stir together the honey-lime vinaigrette base and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the cucumber, radishes, carrots, and sesame seeds and stir to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the shellfish. 


Prep the shellfish

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, paleo batter blend, and ⅓ cup [⅔ cup] cold water until a thin batter forms, adding more water if needed. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the coconut with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Rinse and drain the shellfish. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. 

To the bowl with the batter, add the shellfish and toss to coat. Working with one shellfish at a time, let the excess batter drip off and gently press the shellfish into the coconut, coating all over; shake off any excess. 


Cook the shellfish

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shellfish in a single layer and cook, turning once, until crisp, golden brown, and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 3 to 4 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp or scallops. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. 


Transfer the cucumber salad and shellfish to individual plates. Stir the spicy pineapple-ginger mayo to recombine and serve on the side.
