DIRECTIONS

Grate coconuts. Add coconut milk and hot water. Let stand 15 minutes; strain through two thicknesses of cheesecloth, squeezing out as much of the juice as possible. Melt butter or margarine; blend in onion and flour; add both kinds of milk; cook, stirring, until mixture thickens. Add seasonings, lemon juice, and shrimp; cook over very low heat 30 minutes. Serve on platter surrounded by fluffy rice and topped with additional grated coconut. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
