I walked over to the La Siembra office (their office is about 3 blocks from mine) and picked up my basket: Chocolate, coffee, sugar, coconut and more chocolate! Yum. I promised them I would send over my recipes and pictures of the delicious food I made using their products.
First up: Coconut Shrimp
All you need: egg, flour, coconut, shrimp, oil for frying
sizzle. sizzle. sizzle.
A quick, yet perfectly delicious, dinner.
It takes about 10 minutes to do this: Peel the shrimp and throw it into a bowl with a little flour. Dip the flour coated shrimp into a bowl with beaten egg whites. Take them out and roll in fair trade coconut. Pop them into a frying pan with a little oil. Keep an eye on them as they burn quick! Serve on lettuce, or rice. A nice addition would be sweet chili dipping sauce, but I love them just as they are.
So, will you be over for the next round?
