I received the bucket of Shredded Coconut a couple weeks ago and had to try it in the Chili-Coconut Crusted Shrimp recipe I found on their site. I made one adjustment to the recipe because my son doesn't like spicy stuff yet. I removed the peppers. This shrimp went over very well, even with my wife who's not a big shrimp fan! I have to admit it would have been even better if we could get fresh shrimp in Ohio instead of previously frozen shrimp. We made a dip using coconut cream, vanilla yogurt, and crushed pineapple for them. It was kind of similar to Red Lobster's dip for coconut shrimp.
I also made a batch of Classic Coconut Macaroons for our small group one Sunday night. They went over pretty well among those who like coconut! My wife said they were great just as they were. Other's thought dipping them in a little chocolate would make them even better. There's a recipe for the chocolate glaze right below the Macaroons recipe, so be sure to check that out too.
The best part is that the container (bucket) that their Shredded Coconut comes in is resealable. I mean it really seals tight to keep the coconut fresh! It has a rubber gasket inside the lid to make it seal air-tight. You don't get this from a bag of coconut bought in the store!
Hopefully, the recipes and pictures of foods using Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut have enticed you a little!
Tropical Traditions would like to give one of my readers their very own 1-gallon bucket of Shredded Coconut (2 lbs). (retails for $16.00).
