Low Carb Coconut Battered Shrimp Revised

Coconut Battered Shrimp

When I first started my blog, Ditch The Wheat, I made a recipe for low carb coconut battered shrimp.  It was great!  I used it on more than shrimp.  The low carb batter was good for making chicken balls, onion rings, anything deep fried.  Some things just taste better deep fried.  I had some shrimp…

To my surprise today is national Pancake Day.  I didn’t even know they had a day devoted to pancakes.  I expect a day to be devoted to chocolate, peanut butter, stuff like that but not pancakes.  I joined Foodbuzz two months ago and I see bloggers post recipes for these “food theme” days but it’s…
