Jumbo Coconut Shrimp at Restaurant X, Congers: Must Try Dish of the Week



Who doesn’t love fried shrimp? One crunchy bite into the sweet coconut coating on these fresh jumbo shrimp and you’ll wonder if such a person even exists. Served with a zesty dijon mustard sauce for dipping, this is one appetizer you’ll be reluctant to share.

Restaurant X in Congers has menu that changes with the seasons, displaying the best of the local bounty, but the jumbo coconut shrimp always remains. A perennial customer favorite, and a soft spot for chef Peter X. Kelly, the dish can be found on menus at both Xaviars and nearby Freelance Cafe.

Go: 117 N. Route 303, Congers, 845-268-6555, xaviars.com.
