Some years ago my friend's son took us to dinner in Wrigglyville (Chicago) to a place called Joy Noodles. I had the best red curry there I have ever had. It took awhile but I duplicated the recipe. I got a start by finding maybe 12 recipes online and finding the common ingredients. This is most excellent, and my own recipe.
Heat oil in a wok or a large frying pan. Add the garlic and saute'. Add the curry, ginger and the thicker cream from the top of the coconut milk and whisk a bit. Add the rest of the coconut milk, all the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT THE SHRIMP. Whisk again.
Bring to a slow boil and simmer for 7 minutes, stirring every now and then. Add the shrimp and simmer until shrimp begins to curl and turn pink. Shrimp will get tough if cooked too long...
Serve over hot Jasamine rice and garnish with green onion.
