Belizean Shrimp

As soon as I read the blog post accompanying Half Baked Harvest‘s recipe for “Honey Garlic Butter Shrimp in Coconut Sauce” I had to try it.

Inspired by her sibling’s travels through Central America, this dish captures the flavors that I remember from my own honeymoon to Belize: seafood, coconut, rice, spicy and sweet, fresh.

Unable to locate avocados nor plantains in the middle of the Midwest, I opted out and just enjoyed these delicious shrimp over rice made with coconut milk in my pressure cooker.

I also had to opt inĀ freeze dried ginger and frozen cilantro, but the local honey from our fields and basil from my garden really shine through!
