Beachcomber Coconut Shrimp With Christine's Dipping Sauce
beachcomber coconut shrimp 
christine went to high school with nina in la jolla, ca. then they lost 
touch for nearly 30 years until we ran into each other in buena vista in 
2001. christine and her husband, leo had just bought a house here. now not only our good friends, but our neighbors too! when we visited 
them in florence, oregon a few summers ago they took us to their 
restaurant/tavern in old town florence, the beachcomber. there was a baja 
specialty, coconut shrimp on their menu, so of course terry ordered it. 
and lo and behold; i loved it! so here it is. make sure those shrimp are 
nice and crispy and be brave and leave the seeds in the jalapenos! as 
christine says, mo hottah, mo bettah! they have since sold the restaurant, 
but the recipe lives on.
