Ingredients question - rock shrimp & toasted coconut

peppermint pate | Dec 29, 2004 06:18 PM

Just came across a yummy-sounding recipe for rock shrimp salad with sweet chili sauce and toasted coconut which I'm going to try for new year's. I've heard of rock shrimp but I'm not exactly sure what they are. Do they go by another name? Are they readily available at good fish stores? Also, how do you make toasted coconut? Should I use dessicated coconut (from the bag) and toast it in a hot frying pan or in the oven as I would do with nuts? Is there an easy way of toasting fresh coconut? Thanks. I'll definitely post the recipe if it ends up tasting as good as it looks.
