Everyone won’t stop eating these.



  • 1 lb medium shrimp (45-50 pcs)
  • 1 small broccoli
  • 1 Cup coconut cream
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 2 Tbs mayonnaise
  • Shredded coconut
  • ½ Cup of bread crumb and 1 tbsp of corn starch, combined
      Shrimp marinade
    • ½ Tsp salt
    • 1 Tsp cooking wine
    • ½ Tbs ground pepper


  1. Peel and de-vein the shrimp. Mix with the marinade and set aside for at least 15 minutes. This can be done ahead of the time.
  2. Cut the broccoli into small chunks. Blanch in boiling water about 2 minutes until the color starts to shine.
  3. Slightly coat the shrimp with the bread crumb and corn starch mix. Fry over medium heat about 2-3 minutes until the shrimp turns golden outside. If you don’t want to waste a lot of oil, you can do fry in batches.
  4. Remove the excess oil on a paper towel.
  5. In a sauce pan, combine the coconut cream and sugar over medium heat. Mix until all the sugar dissolves.
  6. Add the mayo and fried shrimp. Mix until the shrimp is well glazed. Sprinkle shredded coconut on top and serve on cooked broccoli.
