I'm sorry OK?! I am sure that if you were in my position you would have done the same! What position might that be?! Well my sweet Jasmine showed up with THIS the other day.....AND I CAN'T GET ENOUGH! He is SUCH a sweet boy! SO good natured and perfect! I am LOVING him! His newborn cry, his sweet little eyes taking it all in. The way he loves to touch EVERYTHING. I am loving him so much so that I seem to have neglected housework, work and all of you, even my laundry schedule is out the window! When you throw a sick little Dawson into the mix....well, Wednesday is Monday this week! But I promise to make it worth your time! YOU WILL LOVE THIS! That is IF you love shrimp and coconut, like I do! Let's get to it.....
Let's start with the YUMMY dipping sauce! Pour 1 T of freshly squeezed lime juice into a bowl. Remove the seeds and finely chop a fresh jalapeno pepper. Mix 2 tsp of that into the lime juice.
Now stir 1/2 cup of either Peach or Pineapple preserves (I tried peach, it was yummy, but I would also LOVE to try the pineapple) into the lime mixture. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Let's talk about the shrimp, shall we? You will need 1 lb. large shrimp. This will be about 21-25 shrimp. Now, if you can find them peeled and de-veined, but still uncooked (blueish), that is going to be the quickest way. If you have to peel and de-vein, either enlist some helpers or give yourself plenty of time. Don't underestimate the amount of time it will take. It is tedious and seemed to take awhile (Maybe 20 min or so). Oh and make sure you leave the tails on. (But please don't eat them! EW!) Oh and don't forget to rinse and pat these babies dry.
Alright so once your shrimp are ready to go you will move on to this..... Now you will take 2 egg whites and beat them on high speed until soft peaks form. Egg whites are amazing! Look at that fluff. Crazy! You will know when they are done when you lift the beaters and the tips of the peaks curl down.
Now, lay it on the pan and do it again with the next shrimp. They will all fit on a cookie sheet, just make them get cozy with each other, in a single layer of course.
