Thai Red Curry Shrimp – Spicy Prawns Recipe

Thai Red Curry Shrimp Main pic

This Thai Red Curry Shrimp recipe was just the thing I needed to film this week. With Independence day just around the corner, I thought a spin on the traditional “Shrimp on the Barbee” was in order.  Though I pan fry in this video recipe, there’s no reason why you couldn’t take these straight to the grill after the Prawns are marinated.

I lucked out at the super market when I found these whole jumbo shrimp with heads.  That’s not normally how I buy them.  But they give that Awe and Wow effect when they’re served this way.  And just so you know, you don’t have to have whole jumbo’s .  Just use what you’ve got and what’s available.

The Best Wontons Recipe

If you like Chinese Wontons, you’re going to love this Red Sauce Wontons recipe.  It’s generally sweet and spicy but you can control exactly how much you want of each, easily.  It’s true that this recipe was once on P.F. Chang’s menu.  I’m not quite sure if it is anymore but I’ve broken down a restaurant size recipe and created this family size equivalent with medium heat.  So feel free to adjust the Chili Oil, Chili Paste and sugar to your desired preference.

Oh, and did I mention the Dipping Sauce?  Mmm, mm, mm!

Lomo Saltado – Asian and Spanish Fusion

Lomo Saltado was first introduced to me through my wife at my Mother in Laws house.  It’s a Peruvian family tradition in her family.  And because it’s one of her favorite dish’s, I have pursued and studied many different recipes.  I now believe I have come up with the best way to cook Lomo Saltado and if you asked my wife, she would agree.

Now if you don’t know what this recipe is all about just imagine Asian and Spanish Fusion.  And, the very name, “Lomo Saltado” is clearly pointing to the salt content.  Some of which comes from the soy sauce.  That’s not to say that this is a Salty dish, just that nearly all of the major ingredients are salted; the Beef, the soy marinade and the french fries.  I hope you give this a try!
