Tropical Coconut Lime Shrimp

Tropical Coconut Lime Shrimp

This has all the flavor of traditional deep-friend coconut shrimp with none of the work (or the fat). You can also omit all the veggies and just bring the coconut balsamic to a rolling boil, toss in your shrimp, and let the balsamic reduce and glaze them.


Serves 4
¾ lb large shrimp or prawns (about 15) shelled and deveined

1 Tbsp Persian Lime Flavored Olive Oil

¼ cup Coconut White Balsamic Vinegar

¼ tsp sea salt

Pinch of chili flakes

½ red bell pepper, thinly sliced

¼ cup diced red onion

¼ cup chopped mango

1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro


In a mixing bowl, toss the shrimp or prawns in the olive oil, salt and chili flakes.

Heat  a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat and add the balsamic. Bring to a boil. Add the shrimp/prawns, bell pepper, and red onion immediately. Sauté for 2 minutes, or until shrimp are just pink and have curled.

Add the mango and stir to combine. Remove from the heat, sprinkle with chopped cilantro, and serve over jasmine rice.
