How to Make Thai Coconut Shrimp Curry Recipe
This traditional recipe for Thai Coconut Shrimp Curry will have your tastebuds clamoring for more, it’s that good. Made with shrimp, coconut milk and exotic green curry, the flavors are out of this world.
There are some dishes that I can’t get enough of and this recipe for Coconut Shrimp Curry is one of them.
Green curry dishes are usually served with rice, versus noodles and are traditionally made by pounding green chilis, along with a variety of Asian-inspired ingredients and spices, into a paste that is perfect with most seafood.
You’ll usually find green curry paste in the Asian food aisle of your grocery store, or if you are adventurous, you can make it at home with a mortar and pestle or a food processor if you don’t have one of these).
For me, green curry offers an exotic take that is rich with curried spice and Thai influences. It’s simply one of the easiest recipes to make for weeknight dining but it also is a showstopper when feeding friends and family.

As in most authentic Thai recipes, you’ll want to sauté the vegetables prior to adding your shrimp. That is because shrimp takes very little time to cook and you don’t want to overcook it.
The coconut sauce is made in a separate saucepan and heated through. I like to add all of my spices, including curry powder, at this time. Heat to boiling.
Then add the sauce to your shrimp and vegetables.
And best of all, there are plenty of shrimp and vegetables in each spoonful, too.
Serve it up over another Thai favorite: Jasmati Rice. This rice offers floral flavors that pair well with shrimp curry dishes like this. Enjoy!
