What's for dinner?

I have been craving coconut shrimp. I LOVE coconut shrimp but I hardly ever order or make it. It is too fattening. A single serving of about 4-5 shrimp can be over 600 calories!! So, I made these tonight. They were awesome. Sean said he liked them better than the fried ones. I really liked them too. They were super easy and super tasty. I served them with A Taste of Thailand Peanut Noodles (). Everyone should have these in their pantry. The noodles were great. Sure, there are more calories in a serving of the noodles than a bunch of the shrimp but it was a nice treat. I am a Thai food snob. I took cooking classes on Koh Samui and usually make Thai food from scratch so trust me they are tasty.

It was a perfect dinner.
