You could definitely make the recipe with regular bacon. I just like my uncured (side meat) because there are no preservatives or nitrates. Most definitley, go to a butcher shop.

Coconut shrimp recipe:

Mix one egg with some almond flour (make a paste). Make sure you dry your prawns (dab with tea towel first). Dunk the shrimp into the paste to coat, then dip into shredded coconut. The fry in coconut oil until nicely browned. (My prawns are already fully cooked so this only takes about 1 minute on each side).

Dipping sauce:

Chili garlic paste from the Asian section at the grocery store. (this stuff is spicy and yummy!) Mix about 2 parts of chili garlic paste to 1 part honey (or coconut nectar), or to taste. Sweet and spicy dipping sauce for the shrimp. DELICIOUS!!!

Ok, got it. now, this stuff you're calling bacon. That's just what my grandpa used to call side meat I presume? I'm wondering where to find this. I've been looking at the local Walmart, not available there at least not as "bacon".

think I should be looking at a different store? a butcher? or in with the fresh meats?

Would the recipe work with regular bacon? I do have that.

I'd really like to make this some time.

Maybe today I should search for a coconut shrimp or coconut chicken recipe. I'd love something different than just grilled meat.

The stuff in the carton is not full fat. It is more of a coconut milk drink. I have coconut milk in cans, but I have also been able to find it in tetra packs.

how do I find full fat coconut milk? is it the stuff in the carton meant to be used as a milk sub or the stuff in the can sold like evaporated milk? I have a couple cans of that, but the stuff in my carton is almond milk this week. LOL

Non dairy. Uses full fat coconut milk. I made this for dinner tonight. It was WONDERFUL! You can use any combination of seafood you like. Salmon would be good. Use dill instead of the paprika. YUM!
