      Thanks, f. I've usually had deep fried coconut shrimp and decided to try something a little less fattening. We were pleased with the outcome:) It's pretty easy to prepare so give it a try!

      Voted up. This looks really good. We've had shrimp similar to this when we've been out but we've never cooked it. Sounds like a great recipe idea, anyway.

      Oh I absolutely will. My girlfriend and my folks both love coconut shrimp from restaurants around here. But I've never actually tried to make it. This recipe seems very simple and it looks delicious.
