Fried shrimps with pineapple, curry and young pea pods
Yellow curry with shrimps is an extremely quick dish from the pan. A great idea for a romantic dinner. All you need to do is prepare the shrimp in advance and, if you use fresh pineapple, peel it. When it's time to prepare the dish, we cook the rice or, if we want to make it even faster, we pour boiling water over the rice noodles. We heat the pan and in 10 minutes we can serve an exquisite dish, perfect for a dinner for two.
Shrimps go very well with the sweet taste. In this recipe, in addition to palm sugar, coconut milk, the sweetness comes from pineapple. Pineapple can be replaced with fresh mango or even an apple. I think lemon juice is a must-have. Don't replace lime with lemon, it won't be the same dish.
