Coconut Palms , Shrimp , Coconuts And Key West

When I first went to work as a Chef in Key West Florida it was not long before I noticed all the delicious coconuts growing all over the island and it wasn't long before I was trying to figure out ways to use the coconuts in my cooking.

And if you know much about Key West you probably know that Shrimp is available in large numbers in Key West so it wasn't long before I started thinking coconut and shrimp and before you knew it I came up with coconut shrimp and several recipes for the coconut shrimp which you can find by CLICKING HERE.

And then I came up with the recipe for the delicious best ever coconut cream pie which you will of course find the recipe for it here on this page.


And bananas have to make an appearance here in our selections. Because bananas are man and monkeys favorite food. Have you ever had traditional southern banana pudding. If not CLICK HERE to check it out.


I hope you check out the links and find something delicious that you want to cook today. Please comment below and tell us about it.

Best Ever Coconut Cream Pie

Here is one of the best ever coconut cream pie recipes. This is one of the best old fashioned coconut pies that I have ever tasted and I have worked for years trying to perfect it. I toast the coconut that I use on top of the pie but you have to be careful when your toasting your coconut not to burn it. You want to spread your coconut out on a flat baking sheet and you want to place it into a 350 degree oven for 7-9 minutes being sure to keep your eyes on your coconut often and you will need to stir it often to be sure it browns even and that you don't burn it.

For Your Best Ever Coconut Cream Pie Recipe You Will Need

1. 3 Cups Heavy Cream.

2. 2 Large Whole Eggs.

3. 3/4 Cup Of Granulated White Sugar.

4. 1/2 Cup All Purpose Plain Flour.

5. 1 Teaspoon Salt.

6. 1 Cup Fresh Frozen Coconut.

7. 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract.

8. 1 9 Inch Pie Shell Unfrozen And Thawed In Metal Pie Shell.

9. 1 Cup Frozen Whip Topping Thawed.

In a medium saucepan you will want to combine your heavy cream , eggs , sugar , flour and salt. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in 3/4 cup of the coconut and the vanilla extract. You will want to prick your unbaked pie shell all over with a fork and then stir up your coconut mixture well and pour into your pie shell. Smooth the top out with the back of a spoon and refrigerate for four hours. 

When your four hours are up toast the remaining 1/4 cup of coconut following the above instructions. Top your chilled coconut pie with the cup of whipped topping and then the toasted coconut. You can now cut into slices and enjoy. And you have now made the best ever coconut cake.
