Nyonya Grilled Shrimp with Coconut Sauce

This Food and Wine recipe uses a lot of spices I use very infrequently, such as turmeric, coriander, cloves and curry.  I wasn’t sure how it would come out and didn’t want any of those spices to overwhelm the flavor.

When it was ready, I was really happy with how the flavors came together.  Although the sauce is called coconut sauce, the garlic, jalapenos and lime came out the most noticeably with the coconut as a faint mellowing influence.  It tasted great, though.

The shrimp marinade left them with just a touch of curry flavor.  I would recommend this recipe and think it would be spectacular with some margaritas!

    Ok I can honestly say I have never tried Shrimp w/coconut sauce or anything coconut with shrimp. This looks so delicious and light.
