Saturday Supper: Baked Coconut Shrimp w/ Sweet & Spicy Dipping Sauce

During one of my recent obsessive pinning sessions I came across a baked coconut shrimp recipe that S and I made a few months ago and loved. I drooled over the photos for a few minutes, checked to see that we had the ingredients, and decided to make them again for dinner. Aaaand they were every bit as delicious as I remember.
