Snapper w/Curry Coconut Soup
I got the idea to make this soup from a fellow chef. For a dinner party she was cooking for friends, she made a Curry Coconut Soup with Lobster Claws, drizzled with Truffled Honey. Sounds delicious, doesn't it?
After that conversation, I was craving this soup the rest of the day. Since I don't have 'lobster money', I cut that out of my recipe! I'm not a big fan of truffled honey either, so I knew I wouldn't be adding that to my soup.
This soup sounded so good, that I started thinking about using it as a sauce as well.
I went to the farmers market to figure out what vegetables I wanted to include and found all kinds of goodies.
Like these cute little baby cauliflower.
I had never seen these before, and I was so excited about finding them that I took a picture of them with my cellphone and texted it to my brother. I asked him if he thought the colors looked cool!
Do you know what he texted me back?
"I don't care what color they are, I HATE cabbage". I laughed so hard. He called my cauliflower cabbage.
I guess not everyone gets as excited over food as I do. To each his own.
I also found these cute little Indian eggplants.
As well as sweet potatoes, turnips, sugar snap peas, and carrots.
I love the farmers market. I don't know if I could ever live somewhere that didn't have one. I mean....I would if I HAD to, but I wouldn't be happy about it.
I roasted the vegetables. It was my first time having a roasted turnip. I fell in love.
I texted my mom and told her that I had fallen in love with roasted turnips.
Does anyone else text people about food as much as I do?
One of the next recipes I add on this blog will definitely include roasted root vegetables. I could munch on those throughout the day, as a snack. They get so deliciously sweet, like candy. Love it.
The soup came out tasty. Hope you try it.
