      Yes in most grocery stores you can buy fresh frozen coconut. Or you can buy a coconut and grate it for a wonderful coconut shrimp experience.

      The best sauce I ever had with coconut shrimp wasn't one of those pina-colada things. It was my mom-in-law's plum preserves w/ginger.

      Gotta get her to make more, it was AMAZING!
