South Florida Food and Beer Pairing with

In keeping with my latest infatuation with Thai food, this week’s recipe is from a local South Florida food blogger/entrepreneur/cooking instructor who is of Thai descent, Patti Ward of The recipe is for my favorite Thai dish, Shrimp Green Curry. The name Green Curry (Gang Kiew Wan) is the derived from the color of the curry. It can be made with various kinds of meat and seafood, and is eaten with rice or rice round noodles (Ka Nom Jeen), visit your local Asian market for specific ingredients in this recipe. Patti recommends Bg Asian Grocery Deerfield Beach.

No matter how much heat you can handle in your food I recommend beer with this dish, beer cuts through the spice and cools down most raging fires going on in your mouth. Keeping with the Asian theme I can recommend the Chinese beer Tsingtao and the Thai beer Singha Shrimp Green Curry
