Coconut, lime, and chile flavors tie this shrimp dish together wonderfully. So many awesome flavors, and each one can easily be distinguished! Nothing overpowers the other. I served my shrimp on a bed of spicy peanut rice with bok choy and have provided that recipe as well, in case you were interested.
