Delicious Coconut Shrimp

Christina Haley


This is an awesome recipe that is guaranteed to impress! It takes time to make but it is definitely worth it. Use uncooked shrimp and the freshest you can get. The time consuming part is the peeling, cleaning and butterflying of the shrimp... I love to do it myself. I guess you wouldn't have to butterfly but for presentation it is my personal choice... This would also be a great recipe to use with chicken, fish or veggies. Enjoy!
