The Secret Ingredient (Coconut): Crispy Pina Colada Shrimp
Coconut shrimp. Even if they're fried, the fact that they're coated in fruit means they're healthy, right?
Coconut has both a distinct flavor and texture. Mixed here with panko, the coconut toasts as it fries, and becomes part of the tooth-cracking crunch on the outside of these giant, juicy shrimp. I serve them with store-bought spicy pineapple salsa, hence the "Pina Colada" part.
