Shrimp is a staple at our house and I’m always looking for new ways to prepare it. When an email came across featuring coconut shrimp, I had to give it a go. All the recipes in my collection called for butterfly shrimp. Since I had never butterflied a shrimp, Google came in handy. Apparently there are 2 different ways to butterfly a shrimp: top cut or underneath. After some trial and error, the easier and just as pretty version is to cut the top.
Once cut, split the shrimp and prepare.
