Entrees - Phase 1 - Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp

View Full Version : Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp

03-20-2010, 08:56 PM
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 pound green beans, cut on a bias and in half
1 pound of shrimp, cleaned, de-tailed and deveined
1 can light coconut milk
about 1/4 c. of agave nectar (I poured directly into can of coconut milk)
2 tablespoons of red curry paste (I used Thai Kitchen)
4-5 ripped basil leaves (you can use kaffir basil leaves but this works too)
Ph 2- basmati rice

Overmedium-high heat, add the red curry paste and coconut milk. Taste your curry paste first and adjust to your heat taste. Combine in the wok/pan until totally blended and the milk starts to bubble. Add your shrimp to the pan and immediately add the diced pepper and green beans. Stir a few times until shrimp are totally pink (about 3-5 minutes total). Add basil, stir and serve.

I'd say, this rivals what you get in a restuarant!

Serve over basmati for those in PH2 OR in Ph 1 you can serve over smashed cauliflower. There will be a LOT of sauce leftover, FYI.

Going to try this, I already have the Thai Kitchen red curry paste and coconut milk and shrimp. Just need the peppers and basil. Will serve over cauliflower. It's going to be interesting! Can't wait to try it. I love Thai food.

OMG Looks so good. Love Thai food but never make it at home. Going to try this recipe substituting green for red curry.

This doesn't follow Phase 1 does it?...
Coconut Milk?
Agave nectar?
I miss Curry sooooooooooo much!

coconut milk (light) is allowed as is agave. If you do a search of the threads you can read up on it.

Yum! I might try this tonight!

*eta: Just made it! I made it a little differently: Used a small pat of SB approved margarine to saute onions, red and yellow bell pepper, green onions and diced jalepeno. Then mixed in the red curry paste and unsweetened coconut milk. Next, I threw in the pre-cooked shrimp, followed by fresh basil. A little extra curry,salt and pepper and served over mashed cauliflower- threw on some fresh cilantro after it was in the bowl. YUMMY!
