After making the Mango Corn Salsa, I realized I also needed a seafood dish. James chose shrimp, so I started thinking about some potential flavor combos. Then I thought about Coconut Shrimp. I'd gotten some shredded coconut since I'd planned on making some Coconut Tofu. Except I used the tofu for something else. Instead of making the usual Coconut Shrimp, I thought making Coconut Shrimp Patties would be a fun, new recipe and allow me to incorporate even more coconut flavor. We served these coconut shrimp patties with the Mango Corn Salsa, and the Sweet Chili Sauce would also go well.

What's your favorite way to eat coconut?

  6. I'm not a shrimp eater but I love coconut. I wonder if this would work with chicken. Will have to try it out and let you know. Either way my hubby would love this dish. Thanks for sharing.
