My sistet is obssessed with Coconut Shrimp, so I was thrilled to find this recipe. The shrimp was amazing, the salsa delectable! So much easier and faster than I had imagined. I couldn't find Tanangelos when I first made this dish, so I googled a suitable subsititute. Blood Oranges worked very well in the salsa.

4 Reviews for Baked Coconut Shrimp with Tangelo Salsa
It was so good that I ate it as a meal. I couldn't find individual tangerine to buy so I made the salsa with canned pineapple and I think it was better than it would of been.
I thought it was nice. I had sweetened coconut on hand. Next time though, I will use way less salt. This turned out SO salty I almost couldn't appreciate the recipe..
The plate was emptied within minutes! Next I'll serve it as dinner, just so I can eat more all for myself.
