Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Seafood #Hors d’oeuvres: COCONUT SHRIMP BALLS #Recipe from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is COCONUT SHRIMP BALLS !

This recipe is wonderful made just for your family, kind of a side dish or even just as a snack. But these are also wonderful for parties and BBYO BBQs. They’re relatively easy to make and such a nice surprise. No one else will be bringing this to the party! Since you do want to serve them immediately, and hot, these are an easy treat to whip up at your own party. Your guests will be impressed. 🙂

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
