Test Kitchen Tip

A squeeze of lime and a sprinkling of toasted coconut enhances the coconut flavor even more.


Heat coconut milk, broth, shallots, ginger, garlic, sugar, and minced jalapeños in a saucepan over medium to a simmer. Add shrimp and simmer until firm, flipping once, 35 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a plate.

Whisk together lime juice and cornstarch, stir into poaching liquid, and heat until thickened, stirring often. Return shrimp to sauce to warm through.

Serve shrimp and sauce over rice; top with basil and sliced jalapeños.
