This is an amazing recipe, and honestly really easy. It’s not as hard at all as it seems, but makes a very lovely Coconut Shrimp. We’ve had it a few times with the Pina Colada dipping sauce, but I have made the Siracha sauce as well, and to be honest I like them both, but love the Pina Colada better.
