Here is How to Make Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp
Since this recipe cooks quickly, it's important to have all of the ingredients all prepared and ready to add to the pan.
Rise and devein the shrimp and set it aside. Prepare and cut up the vegetables and set them aside. Measure out the sauce, curry paste, squeeze the lime juice, and get ready to cook!
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium to high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the carrots, garlic and peppers to cook until they begin to turn soft (no more than five minutes).
Remove the vegetables from the skillet and add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp begins to turn pink.
Add the vegetables back to the skillet with the shrimp and stir in the sauce and the curry paste, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the sauce is heated through, add the lime juice, and serve.
Serve it With
Thai coconut curry shrimp tastes great all by itself in a bowl, over cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles or brown rice.
For an extra serving of vegetables, serve it with steamed broccoli.
Replace the Shrimp with an equal amount of chicken tenders.
Use more vegetables - Add a handful or two of broccoli florets or sliced zucchini to the pan when cooking the carrots and peppers.
Store leftover shrimp curry in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days in the refrigerator.
Reheat it in the microwave or on top of the stove over low heat.
