Caribbean Coconut Shrimp

1 lb shrimp - peeled and deveined

   3/4 cup flour
   1 egg
   1/2 Tbsp baking powder
   1/2 cup beer

   1/4 cup flour
   1 1/2 cups dried grated coconut
   1 Tbsp salt
   1/2 Tbsp ground black pepper
   1/2 Tbsp cayenne (or ground chilis)
   1/2 Tbsp paprika
   1 Tbsp garlic powder  (not Garlic salt!)
   1/2 tsp dried thyme
   1/2 tsp oregano

Dip shrimp individually into the batter and then roll in the coating.
Allow to drain on paper towel.

Serve with various dips: eg. honey + soy sauce + tobasco; honey + mustard
 or marmalade + ginger.

Papaya garlic Shrimp:

  in a saucepan melt 3 Tbsp butter, saute 2 cloves of garlic (chopped, not
crushed) and half a cooking onion (actually, spanish onion is better), 
once the garlic has browned and the onion has cleared, add half a papaya
chopped into 1/2 inch chunks and a tsp of dried thyme leaves, stir until 
papaya just starts to go mushy.  Dump all of this into a bowl and then 
saute your shrimp in the same saucepan (with a little more butter) for 
a couple of minutes.  Finally, throw the papaya/garlic/onion mixture
back in for another 5 min on low heat.  Serve over rice or with thai
noodles or whathaveyou.

Good Luck
