Tropical Coconut and Pineapple Shrimp

Grilled Coconut and Pineapple Shrimp is an amazing flavor combination.

You’ve probably heard of “bang-bang shrimp” which is usually grilled shrimp covered in a mixture of sweet chili sauce and mayonnaise.  Well, Kevin came up with another of his creative ideas and decided to use coconut cream instead of mayonnaise and add some pineapple too.

Enjoy this delicious dish at a tropical theme party or just because you have found another great way to prepare shrimp!
