ISO REC for Coconut Shrimp

I was at a Chinese restaurant in Madisonville, Kentucky once and the owner had a really good coconut shrimp dish. But instead of a coconut batter around the shrimp, she had made a coconut shrimp sauce. It had a pink look to it.

Sorry if this recipie is already posted or if it can be found easily on the web. I tend to be the guy that wanders in a store aisle for 10 minutes, finally asks an assistant where the item I'm looking for is just to find it right in front of me!

maybe...

That very well may be it. I'll have to try it some time to see if it comes out the same way. I noticed though that the recipie calls for sherry. I don't think I could use sherry. Any idea for a substitute?

By the way, you're amazing at finding these recipies online! Thanks so much!

tsim, you are most welcome. I hope the recipe turns out well for you. What is the reason you want to substitute sherry?

haha! Well, I'm not really supposed to have alcohol on campus. (You may note my post about using a Jack Daniel's Marinade, but the bag clearly says "Nonalcoholic." Even then I was careful bringing it on campus.) So, sherry might be a little difficult to have. I'd love to just have a couple bottles of cooking wine, but I doubt they'd even let us have that.

In that case, you can use apple cider instead. If you leave it out altogether, your sauce may not be affected all that much. I use coconut milk all the time in my cooking without ever using any alcoholic drink as a flavouring.

Wow! Never thought of apple cider. I'm really interested to see how this turns out now! Thanks again for all the great help!

In lieu of buying cooking wine, just buy broth or juice. The bottles of 'Cooking Wine' are really a horrible substitute for any wines.

Tsim, since you had the dish at a Chinese restaurant, perhaps this dish & sauce may be closer to the one you are looking for:
