   Combine the seasoning mix together in a bowl.  Stir the dipping sauce
   ingredients together in a second bowl.  Have this ready at the table when
   the shrimp are done.
   
   Mix together about 2 t of the seasoning mix, about 1 1/4 cups of flour, the
   beer and the baking powder, and place this in a third bowl.
   
   Combine the remaining flour with another 2 t of the seasoning mix.
   
   Coat each shrimp with the remaining seasoning mix, then in the flour
   mixture, then in the batter, then in the coconut. Deep-fry the shrimp for
   about 1 minute and drain on paper towels.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Shrimp in coconut beer batter with dipping sauce -- Adapted from Chef
   Paul Prudhomme’s “Louisiana Kitchen.” A nice appetizer, though very
   caloric.
   
   *  Don't put too much batter on or it will overwhelm the poor shrimp.  The
   dipping sauce is great for other things as well.
   
   : Difficulty:  easy if you can deep-fry.
   : Time:  15 minutes preparation, 15 minutes cooking.
   : Precision:  Measure batter, improvise with spices and dipping sauce.
