Midsummer mania: It's time for the eggplant's turn in the spotlight

By Wolfgang Puck, Tribune Content Agency on

Since the shrimp cooks the quickest of all the ingredients, I save their preparation until the very end.

SAUTEED SHRIMP WITH THAI SPICED EGGPLANT AND THAI RED CURRY SAUCE

Serves 4

For the sauce:

2 tablespoons peanut oil

4-inch (10-cm) piece ginger root, sliced and smashed

4-inch (10-cm) piece lemongrass, white part only, smashed, or zest of 1/2 lemon, cut into strips

2-inch (5-cm) piece galangal, or a little extra ginger, peeled and chopped

2 dried red Thai chiles or other small dried chiles
