Giant, succulent shrimp are the jewels of the sea when prepared properly and not overdone. This recipe for Grilled Coconut Curry Shrimp with Apricot Dipping Sauce is a healthier option than deep-frying this favorite dish and, without the breadcrumbs commonly found in coconut shrimp recipes, makes for a gluten-free option everyone can enjoy. With the subtle hint of curry in the backdrop of the tropical flavors, this is simply the most amazing coconut shrimp you could possibly imagine!
