If I have fresh coconut in the house I peel and grate and freeze it. I'll use various kinds of graters to give me a small spectrum of grate sizes, because I like multiple textures when I use coconut. I freeze it because it goes rancid very very quickly. Alternatively, if you have a juice extractor, fresh coconut milk is exquisite -- but, again, I freeze it right away, or keep it on ice. The "easiest" recipe would be putting it in pancakes/waffles/muffins, or toasting it in a 200-300F oven and using coconut to garnish cupcakes/muffins/granola. I use a fair amount of coconut everything (flour/oil/shredded) in my gluten-free baking because it adds richness and depth, without extra dairy.

I love making a fresh coconut slaw with grated fresh coconut, lime juice, a jalapeño or two, scallions, and cilantro. You could go Thai with it and add fish sauce and a little palm sugar, too.

Sliced fresh and tossed with cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, basil, lime and a little olive oil and chili. Jamie Oliver recipe from years ago. A lovely fresh accompaniment to grilled fish or curry.

Coconut chutney:
6 oz. grated fresh coconut
2-3 serrano chiles, minced
1/2 c. cashews (raw or roasted, your choice)
1" piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
salt to taste
vegetable broth

Puree coconut, chiles, cashews and ginger in a food processor until cashews are no longer chunky. Add salt to taste and decide if you'd like a few splashes of broth to loosen the consistency.

I love the coconut candy that I have found sold on roadsides in Hawaii. Simple candied coconut slices.
