The Cocos Islands are known for their beautiful beaches and tropical environment. While I couldn’t find a specific recipe associated with the Cocos Islands, I can provide you with a recipe inspired by the flavors and ingredients commonly found in the region. Here’s a recipe for Coconut Prawns:


  • 500 grams of large prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Sweet chili sauce or mango salsa for dipping (optional)


  1. In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs and season them with salt and black pepper.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and shredded coconut.
  3. Dip each prawn into the beaten eggs, then coat it in the flour and coconut mixture, pressing gently to ensure it adheres well.
  4. Place the coated prawns on a plate and repeat the process until all prawns are coated.
  5. In a deep frying pan or pot, heat vegetable oil to a medium-high temperature.
  6. Carefully add the coated prawns to the hot oil in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
  7. Fry the prawns for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  8. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to transfer the cooked prawns to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  9. Repeat the frying process with the remaining prawns.
  10. Once all the prawns are cooked and drained, serve them hot as an appetizer or main dish.
  11. Optionally, you can serve the coconut prawns with sweet chili sauce or mango salsa for dipping.
