Girl Scout Heaven Shrimp Recipe

My daughter sold Girl Scout Cookies for the first time this year. So my kitchen was taken over with 550 boxes of deliciousness. And of course I wanted to eat them ALL!!! I am especially drooling over the flavors I didn't order for our family, thinking~ I wonder what that kind tastes like? Mmmm...

When we were taking orders for cookies I came across some recipes in a news article (you can find HERE). And because my family LOVES Samoa cookies, and my husband and I LOVE shrimp, the Fried Samoa Shrimp immediately peaked my interest. I have patiently been waiting to try it... So today, I did! And of course being my silly rushed self, I couldn't wait to eat them and I didn't really read ALL of the instructions and two steps into making them I realized- I MESSED UP! I poured the flour in with the cookies when that is completely wrong. Ahhh! So I took out as much flour as I thought necessary and then winged it from there, even adding an additional ingredient. And they were so just over the top amazing even my daughter who HATES shrimp ate them! Alot of them! And now claims she loves shrimp :o) You must try this recipe! Must! And the lime at the end... perfect touch. We had them for dinner with pasta, but these would even be a terrific appetizer. YUM!

Girl Scout Heaven Shrimp Recipe

1 lb Large Shrimp, peeled & deveined
5 Samoa Girl Scout Cookies, finely chopped
2 tbl Flour
1/2 c Italian Bread Crumbs
1/2 c Panko Bread Crumbs

2 Egg Whites

Mix finely chopped cookie, flour, italian bread crumbs, panko bread crumbs, coconut flakes and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Dip shrimp in egg whites then coat with cookie mix. Fry shrimp in vegetable oil until golden brown. Squirt with lime juice, serve and enjoy! Oh and then go track down another girl scout so you can order some more boxes of Samoas...
