Coconut Shrimp With Sweet Soy and Chili Dipping Sauce

“The best recipe I have found for coconut shrimp. The dipping sauce is a perfect Indonesian- inspired condiment. Ketchup manis is a sweet indonesian sauce. You can substitute 3 Tbs. soy sauce mixed with 1 Tbs. brown sugar if you can't find ketchup manis in your local asian food store.”
