Easy Red Shrimp Curry


Today on the blog, I have a Easy Red Shrimp Curry recipe that I promise that anyone can make and it's so yummy! This was a recipe that my friend Kathy shared with me and it's been one I have remade so many times now plus it makes quite a bit and the leftovers are the best part! 


You will need: 

2 cups coconut milk

1 tablespoon of red curry paste

 1/2 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined 

1 cup water ( less if you want a thicker curry ) 

2 cups canned bamboo shoot strips, drained 

2 tablespoons of sugar

1 teaspoon paprika

2 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoon of fish sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste

1/4 red bell pepper, sliced

1/4 green bell pepper, sliced

1 diced potato (optional) . You could easily use a sweet potato as well.  

Steamed rice


In a large pot, bring half the coconut milk to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Add the curry paste. I add a little more if I want more color. Add shrimp and cook until done. 

Add the remaining coconut milk, water, bamboo shoots, sugar, paprika and fish sauce bad bring to a boil slowly. Add salt to taste. You can also add chicken or any other protein of your choice. I sometimes add chicken as well. Add bell peppers and cook for an additional few minutes and remove from heat. Serve over steamed rice.
