Coconut Shrimp recipe

Take a dive into the flavors of the tropics with a recipe for coconut-battered fried shrimp. These crunchy bites have a slight sweet and nutty flavor with a great coconut crunch. Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients:

1 cup cornstarch
2 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled
1 cup coconut milk
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup vegetable oil, more as needed

Directions:

  1. Place cornstarch in small bowl. Place shrimp in bowl and toss to coat well.

  2. In separate medium bowl, combine coconut milk and lime juice; dunk shrimp in mixture and shake off excess liquid.

  3. Place flaked coconut in small bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat.

  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep skillet over high heat; when hot, gently add shrimp and fry until golden brown.

Serve these up alongside something green and fresh, such as a spinach salad or broccoli sauté. When choosing wine, a white wine of any sort would work well; choose your favorite and enjoy.

I really like the coconut flavor. It goes well with some dipping sauce, since doesn't have garlic or salt or pepper on this recipe. Felt a little grease, looks like the coconut holds the oil. I still ate with some beer :)
