Stella and Daniel Antic'S RECIPE NOTES:

  • We are big fans of seafood. Dan particularly is fond of shrimp. We’re also big fans of fried food, so when the opportunity to fry seafood presents itself, who are we to say no? Here, sweet coconut coats succulent shrimp and turns crispy, crunchy, and delicious. Serve it with Thai sweet chili sauce or your favorite dipper.
