Yum Alert: Coconut Baked Shrimp with Pineapple Peach Salsa

By • Jun 9th, 2011 • Category: Dining, Food, FOOD AND TRAVEL, Recipes

If you’re looking for something deliciously beautiful to put on the menu, this may be one of the best home-made feats I’ve seen. You’ll get full, satisfied tummies AND bragging rights for years!

Coconut Baked Shrimp

Recipe from How Sweet It Is

serves 2-4

  • 1 pound tail-on, peeled and deveined shrimp (I used 16-20 count)
  • 2/3 cup lite coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick spray. If desired, slice shrimp down the middle to butterfly. I did this because I like how it appears to make the shrimp “larger.”

Toss shrimp with salt and pepper, then lay in the baking dish. In a bowl, combine coconut milk, olive oil, garlic and tarragon. Pour over shrimp in the baking dish. In another bowl, mix bread crumbs and coconut. Sprinkle over shrimp. Bake for 20 minutes, or until bread crumbs are golden brown. Serve shrimp and spoon a bit of the coconut milk mixture over top. Top with salsa.

Note: if you are not a fan of coconut (especially the texture), you can leave it out and up the quantity of the panko bread crumbs. The coconut milk itself does not have a strong coconut flavor.

Pineapple Peach Salsa

  • 1/4 cup chopped pineapple (about 4 large chunks)
  • 1/3 cup chopped peaches (I used 2 white peaches)
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped tarragon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • juice of half a lemon

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, spritz with lemon and toss to mix. Will stay fresh for 2-3 days in the fridge!
