Gluten Free Coconut Shrimp with Mango Curry Dip is so good! I love coconut shrimp which is funny because I am really not a fan of coconut! However I think the combination of the shrimp and coconut is great combination. This would make a great appetizer at a party or the holiday’s.
It is a tasty summer treat of coconut shrimp with the flavors of curry and mango. I reserve shrimp for special occasions until I find it on manager’s special and then I am sure to stockpile! Gluten Free Coconut Shrimp with Mango Curry Dip is so light and refreshing. Perfect for Lent.
