Sweetened, shredded coconut is a MUST in this recipe. But be careful not to let the oil get too hot..burning the coconut breading is real easy to do. Easy does it....medium heat and take your time. It will pay off with a knock your socks off coconut flavor that goes well with our Orange Marmalade Dipping Sauce.
