Coconut Shrimp With Sweet Chili-Lime Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mrs Goodall

This is another great recipe from the Oct 2006 addition of Gourmet magazine. I've found so many wonderful recipes in this issue and this is no exception. I love coconut shrimp and the addition of club soda, makes this one special!

This review is of the sweet chili-lime sauce which I used with a baked coconut shrimp recipe that I had. Very very good!! This was super tasty with our shrimp and I can hardly think of a better sauce to use with coconut shrimp. Thanks so much for posting!
