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’s 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 curry dishes like this. Enjoy!
