Ono nui means "very good" in Hawaiian and this dish definitely lives up to its name.
This Hawaiian-style shrimp dish came from the Safari Steakhouse restaurant in the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel in Honolulu. The shrimp are heavily coated with shredded coconut before being deep-fried and served with a pineapple cocktail sauce.
Roll the shrimp in flour seasoned with salt, then dip in the beaten egg. Roll the shrimp in the coconut, covering thoroughly.
Deep-fry the shrimp in oil heated to about 350 degrees until browned and cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Drain on paper towels. Mix the cocktail sauce with the crushed pineapple.
Serve the shrimp with the sauce on the side.
