I love this recipe !!!! It"s easy to follow and the results were fantastic. The dipping sauce really brought out the flavor too. I couldn't get the frozen non-alcoholic pina colada mix so I spent a few more $$$ and got the kind with the rum in it so glad I did too. I'll be doing these a lot maybe add a touch of heat next time to make it even better. Thanks !!!!!

I used smaller sized shrimp and they still came out awesome (although not as pretty-looking as in the photo)!! I had coconut oil on hand and fried the shrimp in that; it gave the shrimp a lot of coconut bang!! I also did not find pineapple preserves and thought the pina colada mix was too expensive; therefore, I used orange preserves mixed with a little orange juice for a dipping sauce. It all came out so yummy! I'll definitely make this again! The boyfriend said this was some of my best cooking yet!!

Yum! Just like you could get in a restaurant. Easy too. I couldn't find pineapple preserves anywhere, so I used mango-pineapple instead. I also added a teaspoon of dried chili flakes to the dipping sauce because we like things spicy.

These are the best Coconut Fried Shrimp I have ever made. They taste like they are from The Outback restraunt. The dipping sauce is even better than The Outback! I used Award Winning Pineapple Preserves for the dipping sauce along with Malibu Pina Colada non alcoholic mix. When my DBF and I polished off the pound of shrimp, he proceeded to finish the dipping sauce with a spoon for dessert! I can't wait to make this one for company. Thank you for this outstanding recipe Lori!
