    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This recipe can be doubled. Plan ahead there is 30 minutes marinating time, and 20 minutes of freezing time. If your coconut strands are very long then either chop or process then to make them smaller, they will stick better to the beer/flour batter. The sauce can be made up to 1 day in advance. Purchase large shrimp for this, and the shrimp must be deveined and butterflied.
