cooking Coconut shrimp

June 17, 2014


So I’ve got another football snack. Last one. Brazil has a fish stew called ‘Moqueca de Cameroes’ which is a spicy coconut soup with prawns and rice (and sometimes peanuts).

It sounds really good but eating soup in front of the football has its drawbacks. In anyone scores you’d have to carefully place your bowl down before reacting. Now I don’t want to come across all ‘health and safety officer’ this doesn’t seem (talking through pinched nose) practical.

Luckily, Brazilians also do things on skewers quite a lot, they call them ‘espetinhos’ which translates to ‘little skewers’ in portuguese. So I’ve switched up the ingredients and formatted them into something much more football friendly.

So, just to talk you through…

First up panée the shrimp (prawns) in coconut and panko:




Season and serve with peanut sauce (made by warming and mixing said ingredients):

    Would cooking them in coconut oil be too much?
