Let me just get this out of the way at the beginning: dinner sucked. It’s completely my fault because I’ve only eaten shrimp maybe three or four times before, but I thought coconut shrimp would appeal to me because of the coconut factor.
Many things went wrong: I bought pre-cooked, frozen shrimp from Trader Joe’s (and didn’t read the package well enough to see that it was pre-cooked), my “breading” (dredging in egg and unsweetened coconut flakes) didn’t stick, the sauce was weird (too many things wrong to list), and I accidently overcooked my stir-fried veggies. I can manage cooking filleted fish, but next time we try shrimp, Husband will cook. I’m certain, however, that my dislike of shrimp remains.
So I’m sorry if I got anyone’s hopes up! If it’s any consolation, let me list some of the recipes I looked at as research for this project. I would ask for suggestions, but I don’t feel the need to make shrimp again anytime soon.
Coconut Lime Shrimp from Simply Coconut (probably should have just gone this route)
Coconut Shrimp I from Allrecipes
On a more positive note, I’m having so much fun experimenting with sprouting. I can’t wait to try my sprouted lentils!
