Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW...I cook a lot and I love to try new things. WOW...I cook a lot and I love to try new things. This recipe caught my eye because I do love coconut shrimp. This is one of the best things I've ever made. I love wheat berrys and I've been looking for recipes that use them. I did add the tablespoon of brown sugar like someone else mentioned--I will definitely make again...and again!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had to do a bit of substituting but it still came out great. I had to do a bit of substituting but it still came out great. I used lemon instead of lime, black pepper instead of red pepper and brown rice instead of wheat berries. It was very flavorful, a little sweet and a little spicy but not too much of either. A very good recipe and quite easy to make.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was good. This was good. I'd make it again, but eat it the next day as both my husband and I thought it was much better the next day. Make sure you know what kind of flavors you are getting into with this recipe. I would make it again if I didn't have anything else to do with some shrimp.
