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


  1. In 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.
  2. In the same skillet, melt remaining butter and add the onion, peppers and garlic. Cook until tender crisp.
  3. Ina small dish, add the flour, curry, salt and pepper. Stir together and whisk into the vegetables. Stir constantly and cook for 1 minutes.
  4. Whisk in the coconut milk, heavy cream and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. Taste and adjust seasoning if need be.
  5. Once thick, add the shrimp back to the pan and cook only long enough to heat the shrimp through.
  6. To serve, make a bed of rice on a plate or bowl and ladle out broth and top with shrimp.

    Enjoy! It's delicious!
