METHOD

1
Fill a sauce pan half full with about 6 cups water and add 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Place over high heat. This is your pasta cooking water.
2
While waiting for water to boil, prepare your mise en place: Halve tomatoes. Halve cucumbers lengthwise, and slice crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick half-moons. Trim and finely chop green onions, keeping whites and greens separate. Finely chop dill.
3
When pasta cooking water comes to a boil, add pasta, and stir to prevent sticking. Cook until tender but not mushy, 6-7 minutes. Drain pasta well. Return to pot, and cover to keep warm.
4
While pasta cooks, in a medium bowl, combine cucumber, green onion greens and dill. Add sesame oil and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and toss well. Add tomatoes, and toss very gently, just to season them. Set aside.
5
In a small saucepan, combine butter beans and 1 1/4 cups water. Place over high heat. Bring to a boil, and cook until almost tender, 5-7 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water, and drain beans.
6
In a large skillet, heat coconut milk over medium-high heat until bubbling and starting to thicken, about 2 minutes. Add red curry paste, and mash and stir to dissolve curry paste into the coconut milk. Add butter beans and reserved 1/2 cup cooking water. Stir well, and boil 1 minute.
7
Stir in green onion whites. Scatter shrimp in a single layer over coconut curry and cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp have turned pink and firm, 1-2 minutes. Stir in sugar.
8
Remove skillet from heat, and add pasta. Toss to combine pasta and sauce well.
9
Divide pasta and shrimp between 2 shallow bowls. Arrange tomato-cucumber salad on the side, and enjoy!
