Not even the crunchiest kale chip this side of Berkeley can rival the earth-shattering noise released by biting into a freshly-fried coconut shrimp. That's why we've rounded up precisely 17 of our crispest, loudest deep-fried recipes for tailgating like you mean it. Break out the Fry Daddy (if you don't have at least of the the $30 ones, just stop reading right now) and a gallon or so of oil with a high smoke point (because now you know why that's important) and knock out as many of these recipes as you have paper towels to drain them. Or not, it's the Super Bowl, don't tell us what to do.
