This recipe will take you to the Carribbean. Turn up some calypso or reggae and enjoy making these yummy coconut shrimp! The outer coconut crispy coating is a total treat and then we've put together a nutrient packed Thai inspired sauce to use as a dip or a sauce. It's a match made in food (or belly) heaven! Work to chop and prep all your ingredients for sauce before starting it to starting it up. We call for a blender or using your immersion blender for it. If you want your sauce thinner, you can always add in a little water to water it out or enjoy it thick as a dip like our photo.

You can add any flavor you like to this dish. No liquid is needed in the slow cooker since the chicken will release plenty as it cooks.
