This is one quick, delicious meal! I'm not a big curry fan, but I love this's not overpowering, but if you like a lot of curry, by all means add more. I think it's perfect as I made it...try it, you'll like it!

How to Make Coconut ~ Curried ~ Shrimp Over Basmati Rice


  • 1In a large skillet,( I used my 9 inch iron skillet ) melt 1 tablespoon of butter, over medium heat.

    Once hot, add the shrimp. Cook just for 2 - 3 minutes, turning once and until pink. Don't overcook...they won't take long. Remove from pan, and set aside.
  • 2In the same skillet, melt remaining butter and add the onion, peppers and garlic. Cook until tender crisp.
  • 3Ina small dish, add the flour, curry, salt and pepper. Stir together and whisk into the vegetables. Stir constantly and cook for 1 minutes.
  • 4Whisk in the coconut milk, heavy cream and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. Taste and adjust seasoning if need be.
  • 5Once thick, add the shrimp back to the pan and cook only long enough to heat the shrimp through.
  • 6To serve, make a bed of rice on a plate or bowl and ladle out broth and top with shrimp.

    Enjoy! It's delicious!
