      5 ..OMG, so awesome. Coconut is not one of my favorite ingredients but I thought this would be a good combination with shrimp. The shrimp were slices of heaven! The oregano didn't add much to the dish. I am not sure if I would increase it. I didn't think the coconut was overpowering either. I put the shrimp in the frig for 25 minutes then took out five minutes before frying. I dipped the shrimp in some apricot preserves with some red chili flakes. Maybe a remoulade sauce might work as well. ZWT7 for Dracula and His Hot Bites.
