This is my personal favorite shrimp curry. I just adore red curry with shrimp.

Another quick and easy to make dish, that never disappoints. I use colossal sized shrimps in this dish but you could use jumbo shrimps.

It's a great meal served with rice but is just as nice served with cellophane noodles.

You may substitute ginger for the galanga root.
