Correspondences and Magical Properties
The challenge in all kitchen witch recipes comes down to finding ingredients that compliment each other both in flavor and in their metaphysical relationship.
Fortunately, with a little practice, you quickly discover that much of the time, classic flavor pairings tend to pair well for ritual purposes.
For this one, we went with ingredients known for their abundance properties—those edible spell components that tend to enhance prosperity and wealth.
On your plate, shrimp look humble. Sometimes people even use the word “shrimp” to imply smallness (as in the “shrimpy kid”).
But shrimp are actually pretty mighty creatures.
In 2015, scientists even discovered one species of shrimp capable of stripping a whale carcass!
Their tenacity symbolizes the fierceness of small things, and the teamwork it takes to make things larger than yourself happen.
Shrimp live in riverbeds, on ocean floor and lakes. In spell craft, the ubiquitousness of shrimp symbolizes abundance and the infinite availability of spiritual resources to life.
While coconut most often appears in love spells, it also represents prosperity.
The coconut is a source of nourishment in coastal areas around the world, making it an ideal ingredient for abundance spells in the kitchen.
It also makes a tasty addition to any shrimp batter!
The orange-based marmalade in this dipping sauce symbolizes wealth, abundance, and riches.
Oranges in general make potent ingredients in spells and recipes designed for this purpose.
Red Pepper Flakes
Although most commonly associated with hot foot powder or other hoodoo traditions, red pepper flakes are also considered money-drawing, I consider them a symbol of the “spice of life” and a reminder in abundance spells to be careful what you wish for.
As they say, you just might get it!
(By the way, this recipe was inspired by the recipe for coconut shrimp on Sally’s Baking Addiction, so check that one out for more pointers!)
-1 lb large shrimp
-1/3 cup all-purpose flour
-3/4 cup finely ground bread crumbs
-1 cup unsweetened coconut shrimp
-1/4 cup coconut sugar
-1-3 tablespoons coconut oil
For the sauce:
-1/2 cup orange marmalade
-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more if you like it spicy)
Set out three small, separate bowls. In the first one, combine flour, coconut sugar, salt and pepper.
In the second bowl, beat the eggs.
And in the third bowl, put your coconut and bread crumbs.
Clean, peel and devein your shrimp.
Dip the shrimp in the flour/coconut sugar/salt/pepper bowl first. Then dip them in the eggs. And finally, coat thoroughly with the coconut/bread crumb mixture.
Heat coconut oil in a large frying pan.
While it’s getting hot, line a plate with a paper towel.
Also, mix marmalade with red pepper flakes to be served in a small dipping bowl.
Cook shrimp until golden and slightly shrunken (about 2-3 minutes).
Allow them to drain on a paper towel and serve immediately with the sauce.
Looks delicious. Unfortunately my partner doesn’t like coconut. More shrimp for me I guess! Thank you for sharing.
