You look around the table, wondering if an appetizer is in order. You don’t want to overdo it, but you see hunger in everyone’s eyes. So what’s the wise, won’t-spoil-dinner choice? Coconut shrimp. While this homemade recipe remains light on the stomach, its pop of flavors and splash of superfoods are heavy hitters. You’ll find all the good stuff in the shrimp’s coating of coconut flakes and sacha inchi powder. Though technically a fruit, sacha inchi lends a hint of peanut along with a helping of plant-based omega-3s, vitamins and minerals. Served with a side of grilled pineapple salsa, this appetizer is never a question.

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, lightly blended until coarse & crumbly
10 to 12 fresh, medium-sized shrimp, peeled & deveined
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
