Craving a bit of the tropics? Start with precooked shrimp dipped in a mixture of preserves and mustard.

Ingredients

1/2
cup apricot preserves or orange marmalade
1/4
cup Dijon mustard
1
lb cooked deveined peeled medium shrimp (about 40), thawed if frozen
1 1/2
cups shredded coconut, toasted

Directions

  • 1 In small serving bowl, mix preserves and mustard. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
  • 2 Arrange shrimp on serving platter.
  • 3 Dip shrimp first into preserves mixture and place on individual serving plate; sprinkle or spoon coconut onto shrimp.
Tips  

To toast coconut, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350°F oven 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 6 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.

Coarse-grained, country-style or spicy brown mustard can be used in place of the Dijon mustard.

Split fresh coconuts in half with a hammer and screwdriver. Drain the liquid, and fill halves with the preserves mixture and coconut for dipping.
