Beer + Coconut + Shrimp = A Match Made in Heaven

I don't think there are many things in this world that make me happier than travel. If an opportunity presents itself to pack my bags and go, I'm all over it. I don't care if I'm going to where I can dig my toes in the sand, feel the crunch of mountain rock under my feet, or even bundle up in heavy winter clothes to feel snowflakes on my cheeks. If it leads me to new adventures, I want to see it all! However, on our most recent trip, we were gone for 10 days. While I wasn't feeling homesick for my couch, bed, or familiar surroundings, I did start to get homesick for my kitchen. I've never been a huge fan of dining out, only going to restaurants for special occasions or for a rare date night out with the hubby, so by day 2 of our trip, I was longing to be back in my own kitchen making my family a home cooked meal. By the end of our vacation, "Where do you want to eat?" were words that just sounded pure evil.

Once we arrived home, I wasted no time making myself tacos, but Allison was all but begging for shrimp. Normally she's a scampi kind of girl, but we had some beer left over from our summer parties that I wanted to use up, and I had been wanting to try my hand at Golden Blossom Honey's Coconut Beer Shrimp recipe, so coconut beer shrimp was served to the rest of the gang. 


Coconut Beer Shrimp



I'm not gonna lie, the seasoning is a bit spicy, but paired with the marmalade dressing, you won't even notice the heat. To describe it in Jason's words, "This sauce is kick ass!"

Ingredients
Dipping Sauce:
13 ounces orange marmalade
8 Tablespoons spicy brown mustard
5 Tablespoons RAW GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY

  1. that's definitely a combo I'd never like to try... ewwww :) But you sure did do the photos lovely, deary. I do love putting bear in batter it gives it that special crispiness. Wasn't there anything nice to eat during the trip? Something you don't have in your town?

    1. We did stop by my cousin's house in California and she made us dinner, so that made my belly happy. One night the girls were too tired and wanted to stay at our rental house, so Jason and I went out to a fancy Italian restaurant. They did have an amazing pasta with pesto plate that I gobbled up. I'm just one who prefers home cooked food from a kitchen that I know is clean and I know who is preparing it. With my tummy troubles, I hate putting anything to chance from letting strangers handle my food.

    2. the same with me, especially since I've seen some of the things cooks do in the kitchen and it's No Way Hose I'm Eating Out for me too. People just cannot trust anyone these days especially not with their stomachs :(

  2. I'm the complete opposite, I'd rather go out any day of the week. ;) I love that this recipe has a little heat to it, and hurrah for a sauce that has orange marmalade, honey AND mustard (I'm already in love and I haven't even tasted it yet!).

    1. I think the no dishes to clean part of going out is usually what appeals to me most about restaurants. We did get an Airbnb because I thought I'd want to cook my own food, but turns out I was so tired from all the walking we did, I didn't want to add household dish washing chores to my vacation plans, so out do eat we went.

  4. 3 for one can be a win. Blah, never a fan of beer though. That must make traveling a bit of a pain. I hate eating out, mainly because I'm allergic to friggin everything. That and you never know what germy fingers touched your food haha

    1. Exactly. I've worked in restaurants before and seeing what goes on in the kitchen has turned me off of really being able to enjoy eating out anymore.

  16. I have to try that batter. We haven't had shrimps lately so I think I will have this Beer Coconut Shrimp in my menu plan this week. I also love the dip. That would really complement the shrimp.
