I like it, it is very tasty. The only coconut shrimp I had was fried, but the taste wasn't as potent as it is baked, plus it is healthier too. I recommend it to the husbands if they want some shrimp with some flavor.

Coconut shrimp are great but I usually fry them and they are not healthy. i never though to bake them but I am sure they come out just as well and way better for you.
