    L-Burden's Note:

    Great as a main dish served with rice and veggies, or as an appetizer. I had a lot of leftover sauce, so you may want to cut the sauce recipe, or just make more yummy shrimp to use it up!

      The coconut doesn't stick as well to the shrimp as some of the fried coconut shrimp that I've had in the past. In those recipes the cocunut is usually incorporated in the batter so it gets fried right to the shrimp. This still gets five stars from me because it was worth a little coconut falling off to know that I could eat a couple more shrimp without feeling guilty. This recipe is deffinitly a little bit of a healthier alternative to fried coconut shrimp and we enjoyed it a lot. I can't speak for the apricot sauce, I'm not a big fan of apricots so we just used sweet chili sauce for dipping. Thanks for the recipe!
