This is very delicious if you like coconut. Try it with a zesty marmalade dipping sauce, honey Dijon dipping sauce or sweet and sour dipping sauce.

This was very good I thought the coconut went well with the shrimp taste and balanced nicely. Maybe my shrimp had a stronger taste. I would use small plates rather then bowls to dredge the shrimp. It was quite a mess to make and the shrimp was not really crsipy even after about 17 min. Still I would make them again

These were really good and easy to put together. The coconut went well with it but it did somewhat overpower the delicate shrimp taste. It was more a coconut flavour than shrimp. But it still was good. Do spray the baking dish well as they tend to stick to the dish.
