    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    The yummy coconut shrimp you love with a touch of cayenne to liven things up! The tropical goodness of the coconut really adds a nice touch here. I have found these in Southern (tropical) parts of the USA but they are indicative of any tropical local such as parts of Asia, Hawaii, the Caribbean and so on. Two sets of directions allow you choose whether to bake or fry.

      Amazing! We managed to get our oil too hot and burn the first two so we switched oil, cooled the pan, and improvised. We fried until almost done then out of the oil, onto a cookie sheet, and into the oven for a bit. They still had that fried taste without the greasy texture. Very fabulous, thanks!!

      I made this was really very good.....but I used the baking method, and the shrimp were rather bland looking. The edges of the coconut were almost burned and the rest of it stayed white. It just didn't have the color of fried shrimp that I expected. I did spray it with olive oil before baking, but it never got a good color. I certainly will try this again.......the shrimp were really good, but the next time I think I will fry them. I will review again when I do, although I don't think the recipe is the problem.......just that we are so used to eating shrimp fried and the color was very different. Also, the cayenne at first seemed not to be there, but after the first one, the flavor started building up and they had more spice than I expected. Very easy and like I said, I'll make these again.
