Virtual mission impossible: Western Sahara-inspired meal

As I continue my virtual trek around the continent of Africa, I have enjoyed trying to bring it to life, a bit.

To that end I’ve been seeking out local recipes – or at least locally inspired recipes.

To that end I made this dish of West African shrimp.

West African shrimp over saffron-basmati rice

I made basmati rice and added a hint of saffron for additional flavor. If I do it again I’d probably use jasmine rice instead, but it’s still good. I’d also never cooked with coconut milk before. I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Verdict: tasty. I’m glad I had fresh ginger on hand.

This will make a nice change from Irish stew for a bit.

Win!
