          Instructions
          1. Slice green onions, separating the white and reserving the green for garnish. Whisk together coconut milk, curry paste, fish sauce, and brown sugar.
          2. Heat oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add whites of green onion and garlic. Sauté for one minute and add shrimp in a single layer. Cook shrimp 2 minutes per side and remove from pan.
          3. Add coconut milk mixture to the pan and bring to a full simmer. Add snow peas and stir to coat. Allow to simmer uncovered about 4 minutes over medium/high heat. Stir once or twice until snow peas are just tender and the sauce has reduced to a syrupy consistency.
          4. Toss shrimp back into the pan and stir to coat with sauce and warm throughout for about 1 minute. Season lightly with salt.
          5. Serve immediately over rice and garnish with reserved sliced green onions, fresh cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

              Beef Skewers
              1. If using wooden skewers, soak according to package directions. Lay flank steak flat and cut into 1/4" slices across the grain. Set aside.
              2. Whisk together remaining ingredients. Add sliced beef and toss to completely coat each piece. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
              3. Preheat grill to medium high. Thread beef slices onto skewers. Spray grills with non stick spray if desired to prevent beef from over sticking to the grills.
              4. Grill beef skewers for approximately 7-8 minutes, turning once or twice to crisp up the edges. Serve with peanut sauce.
