Caribbean Coconut Shrimp

Caribbean Coconut Shrimp

This was inspired by a recipe that came with my lemongrass.  It originally called for fish, not shrimp.  Also, I changed a few other things to make it my own, but the results were fantastic.  I made this recipe with the shrimp tail-on, but in the future, I will completely shell them as the recipe is almost soup-like.
