    Kathy228's Note:

    My version of island pesto. This tastes great on grilled shrimp, as a sandwich spread. Use it like chutney, pesto, a dip, or a spread.

    1. 1
      Place first eight ingredients in food processor. NOTE: Don't add sugar if the coconut is sweetened.
    2. 2
      Process about 1 minute till almost smooth but not pureed. Leave some texture.
    3. 3
      Drizzle in the olive oil while processing.
    4. 4
      If too thick add water or coconut milk, a tbsp at a time.

      Chill at least 3-hours. Flavors develop best when chilled overnight. Thin with a little water or coconut milk if necessary.

      This is different, and very good! I think I would like a bit more lime juice, next time. Although this was nice on some grilled chicken, I had leftovers, and I made it into a pretty tasty spread by adding some cream cheese and crushed pineapple.

      What an amazing and very unique recipe - we ALL loved this! I made half the quantities and used this to go with spicy grilled pork chops - Caribbean style - it was like a Sambal or Salsa accompaniment, and next time I have been instructed to make the FULL amount! I made NO subs, apart from the quantity. Thanks Kathy for this lovely recipe! FT:-) P.S. NO photos this time, as yours were so lovely....I would like to photograph this next time I make it, with my pork chops!
