Few things in life make me as happy as shrimp. In fact, with a nice serving of shrimp in front of me, I pretty much forget where I’m at or who I’m talking to.

Ask anyone who has ever sat across from me while I’m eating shrimp and they will tell you that it’s pretty tough to carry on a conversation with me until I’m done. Done with every last, succulent, delectable, scrumptious little shrimpy.

Poor little shrimpies. It’s not their fault they taste so darn good…

Now what was I talking about?

    Will this work with raw shrimp? I suppose it just needs to cook for a few minutes more. (I wanted to make the coconut shrimp, but I didn’t fee like going back to Whole Foods for desiccated coconut and whole wheat panko, I was just there yesterday! Next time…) Fortunately, I have all the ingredients in the house!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Yes, just cook it longer. Enjoy!

  10. I made these for dinner, I squeezed in the juice of half the orange for some extra flavor. My boyfriend kept begging for more! He was super excited that we now have a “Chinese food” option on our new diet plan!
