Shrimp Toast: A Quasi-Recipe


This is barely a recipe. Hell, this barely qualifies as cookery. But it was damn tasty and the snapshot is rather colorful, so I thought I'd share anyway. Ten minutes max, start to finish.

***
Bottled Shrimp Toast

Thaw in lukewarm water:
1 pound pre-cooked, peeled shrimp

Meanwhile, turn on your broiler. On the stovetop, heat in a large skillet:
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic, minced (I won't lie, I love the garlic that comes pre-minced in a jar, and it works just fine for dishes like this "recipe")
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced (optional, but also available pre-minced form)

When butter starts to foam and garlic and ginger sizzle, drizzle the mixture over 2 large slabs of bread and pop them in the oven to toast. I nearly set mine on fire, so be vigilant.

In the same skillet (no need to rinse), dump:
1/3 cup peanut sauce
2 Tablespoons chutney or minced fresh herbs (I used mint and cilantro chutney)
1 teaspoon fish sauce (nam pla)

Remove tails from thawed shrimp, which are always irritatingly left attached (why is that, I ask you? It's not like I'm going to make shrimp stock with those things). Roughly chop the shrimp and toss them in the pan with the sauces. Heat through, then dump the spicy, peanutty mixture on garlicky, gingery, buttery bread, and snarf it down.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it
can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work
due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
