READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by LAURIE

A Thai influenced appetizer that DD#1 (the chef) rates highly. I dont like fish so personally have not tried it but she had fixed it many time and it always gets rave reviews.

I've been trying different shrimp recipes in an effort to develop an appreciation for them. This one did the trick. I didn't want to use a three dip method (flour or cornstarch, then egg, then coconut) so I picked this method instead. I didn't use the dip suggested, but instead ate it with a sweet thai chili sauce. Very good, very easy, and something I will do again and again. Thanks for sharing!
