  1. Shrimp: Clean, devein and butterfly shrimp. Set the shrimp to the side keeping them chilled.
  2. Mix softened butter, chopped apricots and coconut milk in a small bowl.
  3. Fill the center of the butterflied shrimp with the butter mixture.
  4. Bake in a dish sprayed with cooking spray at 400 degrees F until the shrimp have become opaque in color and the tops have browned. This should take about 12 minutes. Watch carefully so the butter does not burn.

  6. Remove from heat.

  8. Remove the hot shrimp from the serving dish, spoon the reduction sauce over the shrimp and serve.
