Thai Red Curry Shrimp Linguine for my Hub!


I do not like repeating dishes… but at times I do take special requests.  Since my hubby just celebrated his birthday I thought to surprise him with his favorite pasta dish.

This recipe was created years ago when I had an “accident” in the kitchen.  I don’t quite remember how but something went wrong following the original recipe directions for a red curry shrimp featured in my Bon Appetite’s magazine.  I somehow ended up using more curry paste than called out on the recipe… and when I took a taste bite out of  the sauce, my mouth was burning from the heat.  In panic and in order to save the dish, I added chicken broth and linguine to the sauce, to dilute some of the heat.  When it was time for dinner,  I was afraid to serve it to his family and mine… but having no choice, I did. Surprisingly everyone that liked their food spicy which was everyone… loved it and it became the biggest hit of our evening.

    As this linguine dish proves, some of the best things come from accidents! I love Thai flavors–lime, coconut, heat–it’s all my favorite! Very nice birthday dinner :)

    Personally, I’m glad that you repeated this recipe because I missed it the first time and it looks fantastic. We’d love the heat. Well, not Dudette, but sometimes a bowl of mac and cheese for her and something else for us is a good thing. Thanks for repeating and happy birthday to your hubby!
