1. In a medium bowl mix the batter: Flour, Baking Powder, Water, Salt, Cajun Seasoning and Cornstarch.
2. Combine until it’s a smooth, cake batter-like thickness.
3. Dry off the Shrimp and remove the peel leaving the tail on.
4. In a shallow bowl add the Coconut.
5. Dip each Shrimp into the batter and then into the Coconut, making sure to get a nice coating evenly on the Shrimp.
6. Fry them up in batches of 3 or 4 until they’re golden on all sides and drain them on paper towel.
7. Zest some of the Orange if you’d like - for garnish, set aside.
8. Mix together the Orange Marmalade with the juice of half the Orange and some Wasabi Powder and serve it along side the shrimp.
