Everyone has some freakishness they rather keep to themselves, right? Something embarrassing about their existence that they would never openly admit…today mine comes in the form of my Korean co-worker catching me singing out loud “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” by Wang Chung… WHAT? Yes… me… No clue where it came from. I completely blame it on 94KX. Central Pennsylvania folks you know the terrible local radio station that I speak of. Somewhere Wang Chung went to craving spicy coconut lime shrimp for dinner. Yeah… sort of all over the place when I think about it? Whatever it was, I went with it.
This succulent spicy shrimp is quick to whip up on the whim and big on flavor! So….”Ev’rybody have fun tonight!”
Spicy Coconut Lime Shrimp
2 Jalapeno peppers
1 Lime, zested with juiced
2 Garlic cloves
1/3 Cup sweetened shredded coconut, heaping
1/4 Cup coconut oil
1/4 Cup soy sauce
1 Pound cooked medium shrimp
Combine first six ingredients in Vitamin or food processor; blend throughly. The consistency will be thick. Place the shrimp in a large bowl. Pour in the thick sauce over the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and allow to marinate at least 1 hours.
Cook shrimp on the stove in a skillet, turning frequently until nicely warmed throughout, about 10 minutes.
Of course any excuse to eat roasted garlic too!
Anyone else want to share their freakishness moments with me tonight?
