garlic lemongrass shrimp with coconut rice


I had some lemongrass. I had shrimp. I googled. Not surprisingly, a Simply Recipes recipe came up. Never fails! Elise's recipes are always a sure thing, so I went with it. I used a bit more lemongrass in mine...I grated some into the marinade. I used more coconut milk, too, because all I could get was a 14 oz. can rather than the 2 5.6 oz. cans the recipe called for. I would totally make this again. It was simple and fast and nice and spicy! I would use whole coconut milk instead of the Lite I used this time, though. I didn't get much coconut flavor. I also forgot how badly Sriracha sauce flows out of the bottle, hence the odd-shaped blobs all over the dish...

I love your composition in this photo! (And I thought the "blobs" were artsy and on purpose.)
