I got this recipe off Allrecipes.com I've made this many times and turns out great everytime. You can use whatever kind of dipping sauce you'd like - I use Pina Colada Dipping Sauce and will post recipe for that as well. This is the best coconut shrimp I've ever had-even better than the local seafood restaurant.This was rated 5 out of 5 from 406 reviewers.
