Before becoming vegan, my husband loved eating fried shrimp, and especially enjoyed coconut shrimp. I went through a few renditions of trying to perfect an air-fried version using tofu and think this simple approach is one worth sharing.
The nutritional profile of this dish is amazing. Coconut is high in fiber and low in carbs and is notable for helping control blood sugar levels and containing antioxidants that help combat the destruction of cells.
If you are like me and prefer savory to sweet, use UNSWEETENED Coconut and serve with a tangy sweet sauce such as a pineapple pepper or Sweet Chili Sauce. To keep it simple, top the air-fried tofu with some freshly squeezed lime juice and omit the sauce altogether.
