DIRECTIONS

  • Rice: 2 cups water to 1 cup rice. In a pot, boil, lower temperature to low, until there is no more water (approx 40 minutes). Keep covered the entire time, you may look inside to see when it is cooked. Stir with a fork when cooked. If you start cooking the rice before doing any of the rest, it should be done at the same time as the rest.
  • Peel and cut sweet potato into strips (like thin fries). Peeling takes a while, so set a little time before apart. Cut other vegetables into strips as well. Slice up ginger and garlic, remembering to take off all the skin.
  • In a wok, heat 6 tbsp of oil over medium high . (This may seem like a lot of oil, but there 1 sweet potato makes a lot of fries.) Add sweet potato, stir fry until soft, NOT MUSHY. Set aside on paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  • Keep the oil and fry ginger and garlic until lightly golden. Add shrimp and fry quickly until pink. Add a bit more oil if necessary. SHRIMP COOKS VERY QUICKLY, SO DON'T OVERDO IT. Unless you want chewing gum in your meal --.
  • Once the shrimp is pink, add coconut milk, fish sauce and remaining vegetables. Boil, simmer until vegetables are cooked, again DO NO OVERCOOK. It's important to keep a slight crunch to the vegetables.
  • Serve over rice with sweet potato, season generously with lemon.
