    I changed it up a bit, using ground almond flour it turned out great and topped it off with a mango salsa with a pineapple sauce too for dipping. Yummy! - 12/22/09

    Super delicious!!! I loved these. I cheated a bit. I only had fully cooked frozen shrimp so I used that and it worked great! I will most definately be making this often. Thanks for the great recipe! - 3/1/11

    These were phenominal. I am a huge fan of coconut shrimp, and had my doubts about the authenticity of these, but I was blown away. The only suggestion I can make is to make sure you really spray the pan well, because part of our coating stuck on some of the shrimp - 10/30/08
