***I did not use beer, I used a sparkling coconut soda I found at store–pure coincidence
***I did freeze my a bit longer- I was afraid batter with fall off
***Watch them, they brown quickly(mine did) and you don’t want tough shrimp
*** I used sweentend coconut flakes
*** Dipping sauce was apricot preserves thinned out with lemon-yummy!

by 5 Star Foodie Culinary Adventures
Ingrdients (makes about 10)
4 ounces goat cheese
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp flour
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 cup seedless grapes, halved
Crumble the goat cheese into a large bowl. Add sugar, flour, egg, salt, and vanilla. Mix well until smooth. Fold in grapes.
Fill the skillet with oil to about 1 inch. Place panko breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the panko and coat on all sides, then place on the skillet. Cook on medium heat quickly, about a minute on each side, until golden. Serve with additional grapes.
**I really suggest you make these, sweet and savory with a nice crunch from the panko
