Pat the shrimp dry. Mix the shrimp in a bowl with the garlic powder, onion powder, and kosher salt.
Place the flour in an even layer on a plate. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl, and set it next to the plate. Place the panko and coconut on another plate, and set it next to the bowl. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Dredge each shrimp into the flour, then dip it into the eggs, then dredge it into the panko and coconut. Place each shrimp gently onto the baking sheet. Wash your hands off as necessary, since the coating can start to become gooey.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until juicy and opaque, about 12 to 14 minutes.
