      Fantastic!! It's a little pokey to dip/coat all the shrimp, but totally worth it. Completely delicious - thanks for a great recipe!!

      I am sorry to give a low review, especially after seeing that several others had great success with this recipe. Coconut Shrimp is normally a favorite dish in my house, so I was eager to try this healthier baked version. I had trouble getting the coconut to stick properly and I also ran out of coconut before I was even halfway through dipping the shrimp. The recipe only calls for 1 cup for 1 1/2 pounds of shrimp. I checked the shrimp at the 10 minute mark and they were already getting a bit too dark, so I pulled them out. The shrimp themselves were cooked nicely, but the flavor of the coating just didn't work out for us.
