Current mood: swooning over this shrimp in coconut caramel sauce, a surprisingly addictive savory-sweet dish from southern Vietnam. Andrea Nguyen clued us in to the comfort food when she published an easy recipe in her new cookbook, Vietnamese Food Any Day: Simple Recipes for True, Fresh Flavors.
“It’s delicious and it involves a nifty technique: Coconut water is reduced with other ingredients until it caramelizes a bit to create a lovely syrupy sauce,” Nguyen explains. “Vietnamese caramel sauce is stealthily employed in savory dishes to impart a lovely mahogany color and build savory-sweet depth.”
If you’re as curious as we were, break out your trusty skillet and tell the whole fam to come extra-hungry to dinner.
