Coconut Shrimp Sauté

By Melissa Nestor - June 20, 2016

Shrimp is by far one of my favorite sea foods. Its nonpareil ease of preparation and availability make it a choice selection for many dishes.  For this recipe I chose to prepare a simple Coconut Shrimp Sauté which is not only healthy but also big on flavor.  In this recipe I used precooked deveined jumbo shrimp.  Precooked shrimp is best when having to prepare a quick meal in very little time. Not only is it time efficient, but it also readily absorbs seasonings.

My mouth is just watering sharing this recipe with you. I really hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did. Here we go!
