For the Shrimp (AIP version)

  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour

  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil

  • sliced green onions for garnish, optional

Bang Bang Sauce (AIP version)

Options for the Taco Shells


  1. Pat the shrimp dry. Stir together coconut flour, arrowroot powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  2. One at a time, coat shrimp in flour mixture. Place on a baking sheet. 

  3. Over medium heat, melt coconut oil in a large skillet. Fry shrimp in a single layer, adding more oil as needed. You’ll likely need to cook the shrimp in batches depending on the size of your skillet. 

  4. Let the bottom of the shrimp brown before you flip (about 2-3 minutes) and cook through on the other side. Once fully cooked and crispy, remove the shrimp from the skillet and onto a towel or paper towel to absorb excess oil.

  5. Whisk together the ingredients for the sauce in a large bowl. Add fried shrimp to the sauce and toss. Garnish with green onions.

  6. Place shrimp into your taco shell of choice, wrap, and enjoy.
