It's been about a year since I started this blog. A lot has changed for me since then, but what hasn't changed is my love for Hungry Girl recipes. While I currently have very limited time to write my blog, I am keeping it available so you can use it as a resource for Hungry Girl recipe reviews. Since most of my time goes towards my two jobs, my family, and training for a half marathon, my posting will be limited for the time being.
Shrimp is one of my favorite foods since it tastes great and is a protein that is very low in points. Thankfully, Costco has fairly reasonable prices on frozen shrimp, so we always have some in the freezer. I was in the mood for shrimp when I found this recipe for a coconut shrimp appetizer. Normally, I don't like sweetened shredded coconut, but that is mainly on desserts. I thought I might like coconut on something savory - and I did!
These shrimp were very tasty, and I was definitely glad that I had made extra. My husband enjoyed these, too, and ate WAY more than the five shrimp that makes one serving. The only thing I felt the recipe was missing was some sort of sauce to dip the shrimp in. They were delicious on their own, but they would have been even better with a thai peanut sauce or maybe even a stir fry or teriyaki sauce to dip them in. Next time I will try to find a recipe for a dipping sauce that would go well with these shrimp.
What I liked about this recipe is that although it uses crushed up Fiber One cereal as part of the breading, it doesn't over-power it. There are also panko bread crumbs and coconut to balance out the texture of the Fiber One. My husband, who now says he dislikes the Fiber One breading that Hungry Girl uses quite often, didn't even notice that there was Fiber One cereal as part of the breading of these shrimp. A successful recipe, and one that I would make again.
