1. Gather 3 medium bowls. In the first combine flour, salt, and pepper. In the second beat the eggs . In the third bowl combine Panko and coconut.

2. Coat a single shrimp with flour, dip in the eggs and then dredge the shrimp into the coconut/panko mixture, pressing gently to adhere until fully coated. Set the coated shrimp aside on a plate. Repeat until all shrimp are coated.

3. Over medium heat, add enough oil to cover the bottom of a large skillet. Fry the coconut shrimp in small batches of no more than 7-8 shrimp at a time. Fry each side for 2 minutes or until golden brown. Place fried shrimp on a paper-towel-lined plate.

4. Over medium-high heat, melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the garlic cloves. Sauté for about a minute until the garlic becomes fragrant.
