The other day I meandered (stumbled) into a Thai restaurant for a nightcap. I immediately laid eyes on (ogled) the wondrously gorgeous hostess straddling the podium stool. Her sexy curves, beautiful bouncy hair, and hip hugging skirt made my dick move. She seductively smiled at me and then in her best Barry White impression asked if I would like a table or a seat at the bar. I initially recoiled in horror as she sounded like (was) a man but after a few more (seven) drinks I became intensely intrigued (horny). I could not keep my eyes off this woman (man). “Fuck it,” I thought. “I’m all over that shit. Bitch is hot as hell.” I walked back to the front of the restaurant to engage her in a sophisticated, urbane conversation (slur speech while pointing at random inanimate objects and poignantly stating how no one understands me). As it turns out, I was not the ladyboy’s type (totally fucking wasted) but at least I know next time the situation presents itself, I’m game. Long story short, I had a great coconut shrimp dish that evening so I went home and made a better one.
Sauté the first six ingredients in some vegetable oil until slightly softened. Toss in the brown sugar and curry powder and stir that shit around for a minute or two. Dump in the lime juice, fish sauce, coconut milk, and water. “How do I make fish sauce? Do I press a bunch of fish fillets through a sieve?” While that would probably work, that question is quite possibly the stupidest thing I have ever heard. No, super-genius, you can procure fish sauce from any Asian market or Yuppie grocery store. You could bottle sewer water, throw some quick horizontal and vertical brush strokes on it, call it life-essence chi, and sell the fuck out of it to rich American idiots. Perfect as a post hot-yoga pick me up!
Bring the mixture to a slow boil over medium to medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and continue to simmer until the shrimp are cooked through. “How long will that take?” Oh, about eight hours. “Really?” No, you dumb fuck. It should take about three to four minutes.
Serve it over rice and garnish with the crap listed above. While I usually stay away from making Islamo-Commie Eastern dishes, this shit was off the charts delicious and stupid easy. Even for rubes like you. Eat it.
