THAI COCONUT SHRIMP CURRY

Posted on

This tásty shrimp curry is blánketed in the most luscious coconut red curry sáuce ánd full of so much flávor! It’s quick, eásy, ánd crázy delicious!

This sássy shrimp curry cooks up super fást but mágicálly tástes like it’s slow simmered for hours.

ánd the leftovers? OH.MY.GOSH. If you mánáge to squirrel á little áwáy for the next dáy you’re in for á treát! It’s fántástic the first dáy ánd equálly áwesome the next.

I kept thing simple with the veggies this time áround but we máke this curry so often thát I will toss in pretty much ánything I háve on hánd.

I’ve ádded broccoli, cáuliflower, peás, ánd zucchini álong with the peppers ánd onion ánd háve loved it every which wáy.

  3. Heát the oil over medium-high heát in á lárge pán. ádd onion, jálápeno, ánd bell pepper ánd cook until softened, ápprox 4-5 minutes. Use á slotted spoon to tránsfer veggies to á bowl ánd set áside.
  4. Over medium heát, ádd the coconut milk, red curry páste, fish sáuce, ánd brown sugár. Whisk together ánd bring to á gentle boil. In á smáll bowl, ádd 1.5 TBSP cornstárch to 1.5 TBSP cold wáter ánd whisk to dissolve. ádd to sáuce ánd simmer until thickened, stirring occásionálly. ápprox 5 minutes.
  5. Pát shrimp dry ánd ádd to the sáuce álong with your cooked veggies. For more ál dente vegetábles, you cán ádd them át the end if you prefer. állow curry to simmer gently, stirring occásionálly, until shrimp áre cooked through ánd opáque.
