These crispy shrimp are rolled in a coconut beer batter before frying. For dipping sauce, I use orange marmalade, mustard and horseradish mixed to taste.

Truly Coconutty Cream Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 28
I love coconut cream pie, but oftentimes, I feel like the coconut flavor is lost in the vanilla pastry cream filling. This coconut cream pie recipe enhances the coconut flavor and texture by utilizing it throughout the recipe.

Chia Coconut Pudding with Coconut Milk

Rating: 5 stars 57
