    I made this for lunch with the girls, they all said they taste just like the one's we get at the Elephant Bar. My husband ate our leftover's and asked me to make more. The dipping sauce is also restaurant quality. I will be making these again.

    Wow! My wife always orders Coconut Shrimp when we go out, so when I saw this recipe I wanted to try it. It took a little longer than 40 minutes to fix, but it was fantastic. The dipping sauce was fantastic for me and the first half with no Tobasco was rated superb by my wife. I split a two pound package of 21-25 sized shrimp and we are already looking forward to the repeat feast. While the shrimp was cooking in the oven, we cooked a potato sliced into fries at 400 degrees. Again Wow!
