Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Curry Sauce

Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Curry Sauce

Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Curry Sauce is an appetizer that is a deal breaker only if prepared correctly. Shrimp, in general, do not take long to cook as some individuals might think. I have so many stories to share, but I think I might become one of the most hated friends or family member if you know what I mean.

The simplicity of this dish lies in preparation. Using store-bought shredded coconut does not help any Coconut Shrimp recipe in my opinion. Because of preservatives added and because of its empowered taste, coconut needs to be fresh when being used in fried food recipes. Fresh coconuts are available in many supermarkets. If you can’t find it in your regular store, go to a West Indian or Spanish supermarket. 

I make my coconut shrimp very basic, fresh coconut, flour, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. I enjoy eating this dish with a curried pineapple sauce. All the ingredients are fresh. One ingredient that I do not use and prefer staying away from is peanut oil. I know peanut oil is great for frying because of the beautiful golden finish it gives foods. But with so many allergies on the rise, I prefer not to use it in many of my recipes.

As a dipping sauce, use my Hot and Spicy Pineapple with Herbs Blend. A spicy and exotic taste for such a simple dish. 

Enjoy this simple Coconut Shrimp recipe made with fresh coconut.
