Shrimp in Coconut Recipe

Ingredients :

1 kg raw king shrimps

3 tablespoons desiccated coconut

1 cup coconut cream

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger

6 cloves garlic, chopped finely

Fresh cilantro leaves, to garnish

Salt to taste

Ground black pepper to taste


Method :

Preheat an oven to a slow heat of 150oC. Meanwhile, use a small sharp scissors to cut the back of the shrimps to remove the veins, starting from behind the head of the shrimp. Leave the heads and shells intact. Using an oven tray, spread the desiccated coconut and toaste in the oven for 10 minutes or until it is dark golden. Shake the oven tray occasionally. Once done, to preven from burning, remove the coconut from the tray immediately. Heat up a large pan with the coconut cream, garlic, and ginger. Bring to the boil. Add the shrimps and simmer at low heat, uncovered for about 5 minutes or until the shrimps are cooked. Stir occasionally to prevent the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Garnish with the toasted coconut and cilantro leaves. Serve hot with rice.
