So I lost this post before leaving on my most recent working cruise. It was a fabulous one but no matter what I did, I could not find it or restore it. I apologize for that and for taking a few day hiatus. That took away some inspiration for sure; I am on my blog feet again though! I cooked some great dishes this week but the photography was not up to par so more stuff to come this week that has life and love in it. This dish sure was one to remember and make again...again...and, you guessed right, again!
Who doesn't like Thai food? I sure do! If you don't, do yourself a big huge favor and hit the red X at the top of your screen. K, thx, bye.
Onto the lovers of the almighty Thai dish that is all the rage in my house and in every corner restaurant serving the grand phenomenon: Green Thai Curry. Just about a week or two ago, I wowed myself and the readership with my Red Thai Curry, you've got to try it, and with that on my plate I did not expect to perfect my recipe for Green Thai Curry so quickly.
Boy, did I hit the jackpot on this one! This dish consists of crispy red bell pepper, soft mushrooms, baby shrimp, and zucchini noodles served in a sauce reduction with sweet and spicy flavors of the green curry paste, coconut milk, and coconut sugar. I swear it is just to die for.
In summary, clean up your drool off your chin and computer desk and get up to go make this right now.
