I'm looking for a good recipe for coconut shrimp. Anyone?

Can you expand on the question? Are you looking for a coconut shrimp curry type application or a fried coconut shrimp?
I've found it difficult to replicate some fried coconut shrimp (probably because I'm over thinking it).
But the game plan I used was a tempura batter and a quick roll in shredded coconut.
The trickey part is not letting the little bits of coconut burn to a crisp before the batter and shrimp are done.
A fried shrimp recipe, but a curry sounds great too...
