Mussels in Red Coconut Curry and Thailand Part III – Bangkok
↑↑↑ ♥♥♥ Wish I had emojis right now because I don’t think I have words for Mussels in Red Coconut Curry. Can we please hold hands, sit back together, and drool over this dish?
This has been in the making since December of 2014. Really, folks. I made Chilled Mango Red Curry Soup with Shrimp more than two years ago and I quote:
Red Lentil and Summer Vegetable Thai Curry
Know what I just did? I went to the gym. Actually, I walked to the gym, Body Pumped for an hour, then walked back, uphill both ways, I swear it.
And then, when I got back, I needed to cool off. So I opened the refrigerator door and stood there.
It took about two seconds for me to see the Tupperware container of Red Lentil and Summer Vegetable Thai Curry. I snatched it off the shelf as if it were going to disappear before my eyes, slammed the refrigerator door shut, and retrieved a fork. Then I proceed to eat cold curry straight out of the container, leaning against the counter, feeling no shame, first picking out all the vegetables, then slurping up all the noodles, practically licking the sauce residue off the plastic.
Chilled Mango Red Curry Soup with Shrimp
Leave it to me to make a chilled soup in the middle of winter.
I just got an idea and ran with it and, little did I know, when my idea came to fruition, it would taste better as a cool summery soup than as a warm wintery one. Sometimes these things happen. Whatcha gonna do? (Shrugs shoulders.)
I went to one of my favorite local restaurants last weekend and ate a bowl of mussels in a red coconut curry sauce. And ya know what? It ruined me+mussels for the rest of my life, unless said mussels happen to be hanging out in a swimming pool of delightfully creamy and smoky red coconut curry sauce. In which case, they are goners.
