Sweet and Spicy Golden Plum Dip with Baked Coconut Shrimp & {Mirabelle Preserves Giveaway}

Happy Monday! Are you still a hour early and a coffee cup short? It can’t be just me that this whole no-more-day-light-savings-time things is futzing with… And really I can’t keep the daylight savings time and non-day light savings time thing straight.

My biggest beef with the whole thing is that now I go to work in the dark, come home in the dark and have zero windows in my office… someone is going to start fake and baking this winter. Mama needs some semblance of sunshine here! C’mon cancer and leather hand bag skin. {Kidding} No fake-n-baking here, I promise. But I will be investing heavily in happy-lights and Vitamin D.

To help get over internal clock confusions – or to make it worse – a little sweet and spicy coconut shrimp was within my grasp – making me feel like a summer was around the corner. Ish. Ohhh the internal day light savings time confusion! Tasty, tasty confusion.

After sourcing a couple dozen shrimp, I took a knife and stabbed them in the back. Or rather slit them down the back to butterfly them. Doing a three step coat, dip and shake – these babies were ready for the oven.

But with any coconut shrimp – you need a dip. When I dip, you dip, we dip. Sorry, my 90′s middle school girl is showing. Mirabelle’s  Golden Plum jam was the perfect base for a sweet and spicy dip for the coconut shrimp. It was a battle of epic proportions between me and Ben over the last coconut shrimp.

Someone’s lung was threatened with removal and it wasn’t mine. Ahhh, marital bliss. And this is coming from me, who grew up a notorious shrimp hater. Well, no more! So…GIMME! I failed sharing in kindergarten.

Crunchy, spicy, and coconutty – I win. Rather, we all win. Winning is fun. Anyone who says different is a liar. Sorry, the truth hurts.

If coconut shrimp isn’t your style, this makes a fantastic glaze on top of grilled chicken. Just sayin’.

Since winning is so much fun… you can win a set of three Mirabelle jams from the fantastic Bonne Maman company. Holla!!

Bonne Maman, in all their gingham lidded glory, are giving away a three jars of strawberry, fig and this limited edition Golden Plum Preserve to one lucky reader. Sweet – just like the jam itself.

1 green onion, sliced on the bias
1 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
1/2 tsp Sriacha Sauce
1 Tbsp Low-Sodium Soy Sauce

Pour in panko crumbs and shredded coconut. Stirring constantly, toast the panko and coconut until golden brown. Remove from heat and place on a plate to cool. Set aside.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside. Take each shrimp and dredge into the corn starch, shaking off excess, then dip into egg coating completely. Next dredge into coconut/panko mixture and place on baking Sheet. To double coat shrimp, take already coated shrimp, dip into egg again and then dredge in coconut/panko a second time. Place on baking sheet. When all shrimp have been double-coated place in an oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the shrimp are done and the coconut is a deep golden brown.

Serve shrimp immediately with sweet and spicy Mirabelle Dip. Devour.

    My favorite is probably seedless black raspberry, but honestly I have LOTS of favorite jams. I love the Bonne Maman brand, and the jars make great candle holders. Pop in a large votive & put the lid back on, stack them in a box and you’re prepared for power outages or parties.

    then maybe you’ll empathize when I say that I’m equally parts thrilled and enraged that a top pot opened up next to trader joes. my faltering willpower is, well, faltering. hope you have more self-control than I do.

    i LOVE TO MAKE ORANGE MARMALADE JAM WITH MY KIDS. i CANT GROW ANYTHING BUT WE DO HAVE AN ORANGE TREE THAT SEEMS TO THRIVE IN OUR BACK YARD INSPITE OF MY BROWN THUMB. SO EVERY YEAR WE PICK THE ORGANIC ORANGES (BECAUSE I WOULDNT KNOW WHAT TO PUT ON THEM ANYWAY) AND WE GIVE AWAY TONS AND THEN MAKE JAM WITH THE LEFT OVERS! SOME TIMES IT SETS AND WE HAVE PLENTY, SOMETIMES IT DOSENT SEAL AND SET AND WE HAVE TO REFRIGARATE IT! wE LOVE THE FACT THAT WE GREW THE ORANGES (COUGH, COUGH) AND MADE THE JAM TOGETHER!
