Coconut Shrimp with Coconut Pineapple Dipping Sauce

It’s November.

It’s cold.

And i’m over here making a tropical summer dish.

Coconut Shrimp

I do this every year. All summer long I can’t wait to crank up my oven and make winter comfort food. And during the cold winter months, I send my husband outside to the grill to make steaks and burgers.


I’m doing it wrong!

Although, this recipe does require you to use the oven for about 25-30 minutes, so technically this can be counted as a fall meal. Plus, for all you die hard summer fans, this will bring summer memories flooding back. And for you shrimp lovers? These are just plain delicious. It’s a win-win-win.

My husband is not a shrimp lover. I think he’s nuts, but then I also figure it just means more shrimp for me and I’m more than okay with that. However, he actually ate a fairly large portion of these and said they were really good and that he would eat them again.

Oh, and the sauce? It’s like dipping your shrimp in a big pina┬ácolada.

Yeah, enough said.
