    spatchcock's Note:

    Have had a hankering for Thai shrimp curry, lately. This was slated to be my choice tonight, but alas, I only had one can of coconut milk! So I'm saving it here to make later. This came from a reputable source, though, so proceed without fear!

    1. 1
      Carefully remove the lids from the cans of coconut milk without shaking them.
    2. 2
      Spoon about 1 cup of the thick (or even solid) "cream" from the tops of the cans and place in a large, heavy pot with the red curry paste.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil over high heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the cream separates into colored oil and coconut solids, about 8 to 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in the remaining coconut milk, fish sauce, and brown sugar and simmer for 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the shrimp (and pineapple, if you add it) and bring back to a simmer over moderate heat.
    6. 6
      Cook until the shrimp is almost done, 3 to 4 minutes, and add the snow peas, bell pepper, and optional hot pepper. Cook until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lime juice and adjust the seasoning with salt if necessary.
    7. 7
      Garnish with whole basil leaves, mint leaves, and chopped peanuts and serve with white rice.

      This was very good. I used the pineapple for the taste contrast. I added two serrano peppers instead of a single pepper. I also used some Prik Bon to add a little heat.
