Red Curry Shrimp With Pineapple from Quick & Easy Thai

Red Curry Shrimp With Pineapple from Quick & Easy Thai

The base for gaeng kua is a red curry paste made without the roasted cumin, coriander, and other spices ground into the standard red curry paste. Wild lime leaves are traditional, but if you cannot find them, you will still have a wonderful dish. Fresh pineapple is lovely, but canned pineapple works fine, too. With jasmine rice, nests of thin rice noodles or angel hair pasta, and a green salad, this makes an elegant little meal." -Nancy McDermott, Quick and Easy Thai.  I'm a pretty good cook, but there is something about Thai food that's always seemed complicated and exotic to me. That's why I LOVE this book : Quick & Easy Thai by Nancie McDermott, (Chronicle Books, 2004). Nancie was kind enough to let me re-print one of my favorite recipes, which is a perfect mixture of the tastes I'm drawn to over and over again; tropical fruit, searing chilis, seafood, and Thai spices. I photographed some of the steps along with my final version of the dish to illustrate the process. Luckily the recipe was truly quick and easy because I wasn't about to wait. I inhaled this entire dish immediately after taking these photos.

Gochujang Grilled Pork Tenderloin Salad with Snap Peas and Peanuts

Gochujang Grilled Pork Tenderloin Salad with Snap Peas and Peanuts

Gochujang is a Korean chili paste that’s spicy, garlicky, slightly sweet and pungent (in a good way).  It adds instant umami to marinades, sauces and stews. Here it takes a salad dressing, which is also used as a marinade for pork tenderloin, to new heights. The warm, grilled meat is served over a cool and crunchy mix of butter lettuce, snap peas, radishes, herbs and peanuts for an unforgettable salad.  Skirt steak or boneless skinless chicken thighs would be delicious substitutes for the pork. Take note that you’ll need to marinate the pork for 30 minutes before grilling, or you can marinate it up to one day before (it will be even more flavorful!).
