1,2,3 Tomato, Coconut Shrimp
When temperatures drop, chilis and soups shouldn’t be your only go-tos. This Thai-inspired Tomato, Coconut Shrimp is a favorite of mine. It’s perfect alone or served over rice–white, brown, jasmine or cauliflower, you pick. This dish is not only warming and satisfying, but also lean and clean.
