A few weeks ago, the kids and I were driving through the neighborhood after grocery shopping and a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver passed us. In typical dad-fashion, I said hey look it’s a Domingo’s Pizza! The kinds all said “Awww. dad, it’s Domino’s, there’s no such thing as Domingo’s Pizza.” I then suggested that WE could start a Domingo’s Pizza and make all sorts of crazy fusion food concoctions. It didn’t take long before this devolved into trying to mix up two of the weirdest foods into something plausibly edible. In any case. The attached recipe is the result of some of that.
What you need
- 1 Can chicken broth
- 1 Can full-fat coconut milk
- 2 Chicken breasts (diced)
- 4 Tbsp Avacado oil
- 1 lb peeled & cooked shrimp
- Some powered garlic, maybe a tablespoon or two
- 2-3 Tbsp Yellow curry powder
- 1/2 Tsp garam masala
- 1 Tbsp Cilantro
- 1 lb Fettuccine noodles
- 2 yellow or orange peppers (sliced)
- 1 cup of sliced carrots
Start by pouring the coconut milk and chicken broth into a large pot, I like using an enamel covered dutch oven, along with the carrots and spices, except the garlic. Saute the diced chicken breasts with 2Tbsp oil and the garlic so they’re just cooked on the outside. Drop this into the pot. Allow this to simmer for 20 minutes or so. You want to allow it to develop the flavors.
Boil the fettuccine in water with 2Tbsp oil and some salt until it’s still soft, but still pretty firm. I’m not talking a bit al dente, I’m talking not cooked. drain the noodles and add to the sauce along with the peppers and anything else I missed. Cover for another 15 or so minutes so that noodles can continue cooking. Add the shrimp & re-cover for another 5 minutes -basically until the shrimp is hot. If you stick it in too early, they’ll become tough.
That’s it. I did this totally off the cuff and so the measurements may be nowhere near correct with the spices, you’ll want to adjust to taste.

See, little stuff like this is why you’ve really earned that “World’s Greatest Dad” coffee cup! 🙂

I don’t know about that. But it is fun to goof off, isn’t it?
