Spicy Shrimp in Coconut Sauce

Spicy Shrimp in Coconut Sauce created by Baby Kato

This is a Brazilian favorite from the state of Bahia. If you can't find dende oil, a Brazilian staple palm oil, you can substitute annato or peanut oil, but the flavor won't be quite as authentic. Still delicious, though, this dish is a flavorful stir fry addition to your menu.

    Awesome recipe Annacia. The picky dh gave it 5 *'s. The shrimp and coconut sauce was spicy, spicy spicy. We really enjoyed the flavors and textures in this tasty dish; it was perfect served over jasmine rice. The only changes to your recipe were that I used what I had on hand, that said I used coconut oil instead of the palm oil and fresh green thai chilies instead of the dried red chilies and omitted the walnuts because of dh's allergy. The dish was very flavorful and full of depth. We both enjoyed the tomatoes and broccoli in this dish, yes, even me. Thank you for sharing another winner which has gone into my keeper box.
