Madagascar is an island off of the coast of Southern Africa. It is famous for it’s rich diversity of animal species that are not found in other places.
When I think of Madagascar I think of Lemurs. The nocturnal primate that Madagascarians always considered devils. Their is something a little frightening about their looks.
I never gave much thought to the food of this unusual island, but it is quiet interesting…having been influenced by Africa and Southeast Asia.
Coco Crevette is a common dish using seafood such as prawns, I used shrimp… coconut milk and curry to make a comforting stew that is terrific eaten over rice.
