Wow, sun is starting to shine again in Germany! Pretty much continuously since Monday actually. And along with the sun, summer food cravings are also starting to come back. Yesterday we therefore ate a salad with diced tomatoes, juicy olives and diced strawberries: a delicious mix, especially when you add raspberry vinegar to the vinaigrette.
Today for lunch I still craved light summer food, more something in the Asian direction though. I consequently sauteed some shrimp with leeks and Zucchini, added freshly grated ginger, young garlic, some saffron, lime and a can of coconut milk. I ate the whole thing with baguette bread and beet leaves so I could sauce up the coconut milk later on. Actually on the pic it looks like a sandwich; Well it was meant to be one from the start, but the sauce went everywhere and I had to use fork and knife to eat it in the end; thus,a liquid sandwich. A yummy liquid sandwich!
Oh and of course I needed to add some spice too. And when I saw those buddies at the market, advertised as “hottest chilies in the world”, I couldn’t resist. I only added like one or two very thin cuts of it though since I didn’t want to spoil that summer feeling!
