Thai shrimp with coconut milk & Pašmanero hot sauce


Thai cousine lovers, prepare aprons, this dish is just for you!

We decided to take our Pašmanero on an Asian adventure.

If you have ever watched Thai or Indonesian wok dishes being prepared, then you know that they always have a sweet ingredient in their dishes. For them, it is usually palm sugar in chunks, from which they break off a part and put it on heated oil to melt it. We suggest brown sugar instead, and for an extra twist, try a few drops of sweet fig pashman libre aceto.

When buying coconut milk, take the one in the can, which you will find in the exotic cuisine department, and not the coconut drink.

Namely, to get a creamy sauce, you need thick milk, on top of which a fat layer is created, not just a liquid.
