Our wide slice, unsweetened, coconut flakes from the Philippines make a wonderful addition to many sweet and savory dishes. Coconut has a mild, refreshing, tropical flavor that is also slightly nutty and earthy.
For savory dishes, add coconut flakes to breading on fried shrimp or chicken, in soups, with rice, or along side seafood. Thai, Southeast Asian, Caribbean, and South American cuisine often works with coconut flavors. It pairs well with basil, black pepper, curry, ginger, lemongrass, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and tumeric.
For sweet dishes, sprinkle unsweetened coconut flakes over ice cream, fruit, pies, cookies, cakes, cupcakes and other baked goods. It pairs especially well with berries and strawberries, guava, pineapple, banana, and citrus fruits.
Bring out some warm vanilla notes by toasting the coconut flakes. Toasted coconut is a delicious addition to baked goods, vanilla or cream cheese icings, and fudge. It accents brazil nut and other nut flavors, caramel, and coffee, and chocolate notes.
Unlike shredded coconut, coconut flakes are larger and wider. When used, they lend a professional appearance to dishes.
