Thai Shrimp

4 years ago

Sorry for the bad photo, the restaurant had only red lighting so all my photos turned out red =(

During winterlicious, yes, its a very old photo, my boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on King`s street.

Winterlicious, in Toronto, is an annual event where restaurants offer a prix fixe menu letting you choose between an appetizer, an entree and dessert from a fixed menu. Prices range from $20 - 50 for dinners. A lot of people love winterlicious because it allows you to go to high-end restaurants without the high-end price.

The appetizer I ordered that night was the Thai shrimp. It was basically a tropical inspired dish where Tiger shrimp are breaded with coconut shavings and panko crumbs. They gave me 4 shrimps and a sweet and sour dipping sauce.

To be honest, though I love shrimp, I`m not a big fan of tempura or panko or tornedo shrimp. I don`t really enjoy having fried crumbs or dough surround the shrimp. The restaurant used too much batter so you ended up having more batter than shrimp. The coconut was a nice touch though, it was very good. I just wished they used less batter.

After 2 of them, I gave the rest to my boyfriend because the batter was overwhelming. In order to get to the shrimp, you ended up with a mouthful of coconut and panko batter and you don`t taste the shrimp anymore.

The thai dipping sauce they gave was a standard sweet and sour dipping sauce which helped take some of the flavor of the batter out but I found that it didn`t go too well with the coconut.

What do you guys think?
