Red Curry Coconut Shrimp

barbara lentz


Very tasty red curry. I am not a huge fan of really spicy dishes and just 2 tsp. of red curry paste is just right for me. If you want more heat add more red curry. Instead of wasting the rest of the can of red curry paste I put the curry in an ice cube tray and froze it. I put a tsp. in each cup of the ice cube trays and froze it. I found these nice ice cube trays with lids on Amazon and I use them for tomato paste, ginger, and fresh herbs. I can pull them out and pop out just what I need.
