    I would eat almond butter on ANYTHING–even crazy salty stuff that no one thinks about!

    Love the shrimp idea–I made one just like that but topped with tortilla chip crumbles–so crunchy and so good.

    That’s funny what you said about the guy behind the counter when you asked for 6 shrimps! When I cook for my husband and myself, I usually only buy about 10 – 5 each!

    That is a great healthy alternative to coconut shrimp. Every time I see them on menus they are deep fried!

    Maddie looks gorgeous!

    I LOVE dried mango so the combo of that with almond butter sounds like perfection. Must try!

    And that coconut shrimp looks heavenly.

    Hi Meghann! I’m a long-time reader but I haven’t commented very much…but I do love your blog! Two random things: 1) I decided to check out your dinner post just as I started to eat my dinner of…a half dozen coconut shrimp! Mine were Trader Joe’s and not homemade, though, but still kinda funny! 2) Do you watch 24? There is a character this season named Arlo – he is a CTU agent in the show, and I really think he looks like Derek (but Derek is better looking, as I’m sure you would agree!! I kept wondering who Arlo reminded me of and I finally linked it to your blog here!!) :)

    I thought AB on oranges was weird, until I tried it! Looks like I’ll be breaking out the dried mango next :)

    Ahh raw shrimp gross me out! But then you made them look so delicious haha. I’m going to have to toughen up and learn to make them on my own, bc those look great!

    your coconut shrimp sounds delicious too! i love coconut shrimp, but since it’s usually fried, i try to stay away from it… this is a great alternative! thanks!

    I have never had coconut shrimp but I love both shrimp and coconut so I think I need to try it! I think Barney butter goes with anything!

    I love this idea for coconut shrimp! I think they’d be great pan-fried in a little coconut oil too 😉

    I’ve been doing mango with pb for a while now. So good! Especially decadent when you throw some dark chocolate chips on top!

    The shrimpies look amazing!

    I’ve been eye-ing dried fruit in the bulk bins at my local grocery store — might just have to try it out — Although it seems a little pricey. What brand do you buy?

      I just finished off a stash of Trader Joe’s dried mango.

    Yummy dinner (except I hate okra – blech. :) I was traumatized by my college dining hall I think…) Quick question – do you use unsweetened coconut? Where do you get it – I keep looking and haven’t been successful in finding it…

    • Meghann
      February 17, 2010

      Yes, its unsweetened. I find it at whole foods.

    I was craving coconut shrimp just the other day but decided not to make it because I have been trying to eat healthier lately. I like that you baked yours and that’s something I’ve never tried before. I’m saving this recipe. Thanks!

    Great idea with the shrimp! I definetly want to try that – I sometimes find them so dull on their own, nice to see a groovy way of eating them!!
    Your dog is beautiful :)

    I love coconut shrimp—especially the fruity dipping sauce that goes with them :)

    I love dried fruit and nut butter.

    There for a second I thought you were going to say you put the shrimp in with the last of your nut butter. I agree that it’s good on everything, but maybe not EVERYTHING everything. :)

    What a great idea:) I love coconut shrimp but as I am trying to lose weight I never order them. For some reason making them never occured to me. What a smart cookie! I will have to have those soon!

    I think it is possible to eat almond butter on anything! Love your flatware! I have the same but with the smaller polka dots.

    First of all, your dog is adorable. Secondly, that’s a great idea for shrimp! I have some in my fridge and I’ll have to try that recipe!

    Not only have all your blog posts talked me into buying almond butter, but I can’t wait to try out the shrimp. And little Maddie is adorable – we have an older Jack in our household. Great dogs who like any of said leftovers.

    So many awesome ideas in this post! I love the coconut shrimp and rutabaga fries? Never thought of that! They look great!

    Aww, I love how you only asked for 6 shrimp! I probably would have gotten more and froze the portions, but your way is smart, too. That’s a perfect serving size.

    I’ve never actually had coconut shrimp, but I always drool over it in recipes and pictures – I guess I should make it one day!

    I’ve made rutabaga fries before, but I found they too forever to soften up! Carrot fries are my favourite now. :-)
