I try not to futz around with recipes the first time around. I also try to make it a point to not take too much of other peoples' reviews & suggestions too close to heart. I figure the person that submitted it, submitted it that way for a reason. I should have paid attention on this one. The batter needs either twice the flour, or half the water. It was a drippy, useless mess. Finally, on the last 10 shrimp I just dumped the coconut itself into the batter. I probably used about twice the amount of coconut called for before mixing it with the batter. The sauce: yuck. Way way too much mustard, kills the whole idea of coconut shrimp. I get the concept of wanting a little spice - but mustard just didn't work. I'm kinda glad I planned on a second sauce, since I'm not a mustard person to begin with. I chopped up a can of Dole's Mixed Tropical Fruit - it was scoffed up. And so were the shrimp, by the way. So despite me nearly wailing this one across the room, to be fair, they were very good. But for inaccuracy, disproportion & personal aggravation I only gave this one 3 stars.
