Spicy Rock Shrimps with Coconut Cream SauceAs I've mentioned before, I prefer to cook seafood on weekends for my family. Today's recipe includes tasty rock shrimps with a delicious coconut cream sauce. Generally, shrimps go very well with coconut no matter what kind of additional ingredients are included with them. Rock shrimps used in this recipe are not available in every area. You can easily replace them with a local variant. Because fresh coconut cream is an essential ingredient of this recipe you must extract it fresh at your home to get the best results. You can refrigerate these shrimps for at least two days. We generally consume this recipe with hot steamed rice. This creamy and tasty recipe is ideal for dinner's main course entry.
