Malay-Inspired Shrimp & Salad

Last
 night’s light dinner had most of the ingredient’s of a typical satay dinner – shrimp, cucumbers, onions, garlic, peanut sauce and chili. I did not attempt to go “authentic”, but rather enjoy great food with as little fuss as possible. The whole thing did not take more than fifteen minutes to prepare, but it tasted like a million bucks and reminded me of the sometimes simple, but alway’s wonderful meals my friend’s and I had so many times, so many years ago in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and other places in South East Asia and the Pacific / South Pacific. Sometimes, when I have a meal like this and I am in the mood and have the time to reflect, it connect’s me vividly to people, times and places in my distant past 🙂

Your reflections caused me to pause this morning, as a beautiful sunrise spread across the sky, and reflect on some of my own life’s opportunities and adventures. Thank you Chef Hans!! As you say, “Life is good!”. Have a marvelous day!! Ciao DD 🙂

    1. 🙂 Life is a marvelous gift and for me, each day holds new opportunities. I believe It is how I view these opportunities and embrace them that makes the difference in my reflections having their silver linings. Wow listen to me getting all philosophical…… LOL! Can’t hardly wait to see you next culinary master piece. Ciao DD

  3. Hi Rolf,
    Before my dear Maria passed away, we had planned to travel south Asia and the pacific so I could show her all the places I lived, worked and visited. But, maybe I’ll go by myself next year after I retire.
    I REALLY miss that part of the world, where I spend so many, mostly happy, years.
