Ingredients

Directions

Fill a pot filed with several inches of vegetable oil and heat to 350 degrees F.

In a pot of boiling water, add the sweet potatoes and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking, start the shrimp. Grind the Almond Joy pieces in a food processor until finely chopped. In a bowl, add half of the candy, the breadcrumbs, coconut, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pat the shrimp dry, dip in the egg and then in the coconut mixture. Set aside. For the compound butter, mix the rest of the candy with the softened butter, almonds and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drain the sweet potatoes and mash with the smoked paprika, cinnamon, cayenne and heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper. Hold warm over low heat. Fry the shrimp until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. To serve, place a spoonful of the sweet potato mash on a plate, top with 3 pieces of the shrimp and serve the Almond Joy butter on the side.
