Coconut-Hazelnut Shrimp

Coconut-Hazelnut Shrimp (15) WM

I have never made hazelnut anything, and this was a pretty cool dish to start with.  The only thing that I would change is to buy smaller shrimp – I bought the jumbo size and they tasted well, fishy.  I usually buy the medium size and don’t have that problem.  The peach salad was to die for.

  1. I adore hazelnuts. They grow all over Italy, and are used in so many wonderful Italian dishes, both sweet and savory. This one sounds fantastic, and your Peach Salad also sounds utterly tempting, Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. Super good! My entire family loved both of these. And the peach salad was even better the second day 🙂
