The flavors are great. I substituted coconut milk for almond milk. The only problem I had was with the panko. When baked I never experience the golden brown color pictured. The shrimp were perfect at 5 min each side. The coconut turns toasty, but not the panko. Any suggestions?

Delicious! I didn't have Almond flavored Silk, but used regular Silk. Next time I will try the almond flavored. Dipping sauce was also a big hit with my family.

Great easy recipe! Charlene - Silk is in the dairy by the milk. We drink it because my son is lactose intolerant.

Ok, I'm only rating the sauce. It was phenomenal! We served it at a hot oil fondue party for shrimp, beef and chicken and it was a favorite!!
