Coconut Shrimp I
March 27, 2006

I bought a bag of tail on shrimp at Costco because we just moved to a beach city and shrimp sounded so good, but I wasn't sure what else to do with them other than the obvious easy shrimp cocktail dish, but that's like an appetizer and I wanted to make a dinner for me and my husband, ya know, something more filling. I thought the task of making coconut shrimp sounded too elaborate and a nightmare for me because I have the passion for cooking but not neccessarily the experience. I was wrong. Making this was easy and fun. I was surprised at the amount of coconut breading stays on the shrimp too. The key is the refrigeration time to get it cold enough so that the coconut dough sticks to the shrimp. I mixed both dijon and regular mustard with the orange marmalade and horseradish sauce. The result was delicious, great for a beginner too who wants to break out of the macaroni box. I guess it's not really all that good for me cuz it's fried, not something I'd make all the time, but every once in a while for a special occasion. Definitely a recipe I will make again, Saved. Thanks. Hope this review was helpful!
