The Chef: Belkys Nerey
The Dish: Coconut Shrimp

1 pound of frozen cooked shrimp, thawed and drained

1 tsp. turmeric
1-2 tbs. brown sugar (to taste)
1/2 juice of one lime
Fresh chopped herbs (parsley or cilantro)

Method of Preparation:
– Put butter in a pan on medium heat and let it melt. Add flour and whisk until a paste forms. Add the coconut milk and keep stirring another couple of minutes.

– Add cooked shrimp to the sauce and stir it in… let it sauté for a few minutes to absorb the flavors. Add lime juice and finish with some fresh chopped parsley (or cilantro- your preference.)
