Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Curry Sauce

Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Curry Sauce is an appetizer that is a deal-breaker when you’re craving something exotic. Sweet, spicy, crisp, golden, and delicious!

Shrimp, in general, does not take long to cook. This type of seafood is very versatile. It goes well with pasta and rice.

An easy recipe with minimal preparation

The simplicity of this dish lies in the preparation. Using store-bought shredded coconut is the easiest route to take. But what about preservatives and the added sugar that empowers the taste of the coconut. In my opinion, fresh coconut is always better if you can use it.

Where to find fresh coconut

Fresh coconuts are available at many supermarkets. If you can’t find it in your regular store, go to a West Indian or Spanish supermarket.


How to make the coconut shrimp recipe

I make my coconut shrimp very basic. I use fresh shredded coconut, flour, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. All the ingredients are fresh.

The shrimp are deveined first, then seasoned. After the batter mixture is prepared. Each shrimp is carefully dipped into the batter and coated with shredded and deep-fried.

I do not use peanut oil because many of us suffer from different types of allergies. Peanut oil may be great for frying because of the beautiful golden finish it gives foods, I will not use it. There are other natural ways to add color and flavor to food.

Serve the coconut shrimp with the prepared tangy curry sauce.

Enjoy this simple Coconut Shrimp recipe made with fresh coconut.
