  • 4 oz Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce or hot sauce of your choice
  • 3 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 tbs honey
  • ½ lb shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 cups cracker crumbs very fine
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 oz milk or water
  • 3 oz coconut oil for frying
  • 1 loaf french bread (12 inches) shaped like a baguette but thicker, 30.48 cm
  • 1.5 oz gorgonzola or bleu cheese
  • 1 oz arugula or greens of your choice


Buffalo Sauce

  • Melt the Kelapo coconut oil over medium heat, allow to get slightly hot
  • add hot sauce and honey, using a wire whisk combine the ingredients until all of the coconut oil has been absorbed and the sauce has thickened some.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat and set aside
  • Fried Shrimp
  • Shrimp should be deveined, rinsed and patted dry with paper towels.
  • Whip eggs and milk together to make an egg wash
  • Set up a bowl with your egg wash and one with the cracker crumbs
  • place shrimp a few at a time into the cracker crumb, then the egg wash and then back into the cracker crumbs, pressing the breading into the shrimp so it has an even coating.
  • After breading all of the shrimp, place them into the freezer for 15-20 minutes. (this will make the frying process much easier)
  • When shrimp are partially frozen, set up your frying pan
  • Place ½ cup of coconut oil into the frying pan and allow it to heat up over medium high heat
  • When the oil is hot, place half the shrimp into the pan and fry on each side until you have a nice golden brown color then turn them over and cook the other side. (You may also stand the shrimp up to cook the underside)
  • If you're not sure that they shrimp are completely cooked place them into a 350 degree oven for 7 minutes.


  • Slice your long roll almost all the way through and remove some of the inside. Cut the roll into two 6 inches pieces.(15 cm each)
  • Place half the arugula on the roll.
  • Dip fried shrimp into the buffalo sauce, just long enough to coat
  • Place buffalo shrimp onto of arugula, and top with gorgonzola crumbles.
  • Drizzle extra sauce over the finished sandwich if you like it extra messy and delicious!
  • Serve immediately
