This dish is a refreshing variation of the regular Ginataang Hipon. I love putting my own twist on recipes and with this, adding the coconut meat makes it so much more flavorful and exciting. It will definitely give you an amazing dose of SURPRISE! Now, this recipe, gets even better. Combine coconut milk, shrimp and coconut meat together and you’ll experience a truly tropical paradise.
