Ok so here’s the finished products. Nash and I crushed the blistered shishito peppers as an appetizer, I add salt, pepper, fresh lemon juice, ponzu, and sweet chili sauce to flavor them a bit. The shrimp are separate bc not everyone likes them. They have a lemon butter, white wine coconut broth over them and then I sprinkled the dried lime over the top after to keep with the Thai style theme. The soup is coconut curry broth w chicken, onion, carrot and dressed w everything you see. Thanks for following along!
