Coconut creme brulee

I made these cremes brules this weekend using the coconut milk leftover from my lamb curry (link) and the egg yolks leftover from my stock clarification experiment (link).

It looks nice isn't it? Well,.... to tell you the truth, I forgot to add sugar to the custard. I don't know what is happening to me, I get so forgetful these days, I guess I just don't sleep enough... There's often a way to get out of trouble with a bit of imagination so I'll make a thicker caramel crust on the next ones in order to add a bit of sweetness.

And, I should not use a very coarse sugar (like I did) since it burns before it has the time to melt.
