Coconut Curry Shrimp

Hi Dolls,

You guys know I am all about quick and easy meals you can make on a weeknight that is guaranteed to be delicious, filling, and ready to hit the table in 30 minutes or less.  One of my favorite dishes to make, that meets all of these requirements, is Coconut Curry Shrimp!  I literally takes about 25 minutes at the most, from start to finish and it’s so delicious!  

I recently received the Curry Spice Trio from Fresh Jax, a local organic spice blends company!  It came with yellow, green, and red curry blends!  

I typically use yellow curry in all of my curry dishes so I was excited for the opportunity to try the Red Thai Curry seasoning in my coconut curry shrimp dish this evening.

Overall, the ingredients needed for this dish are pretty minimal and with a little preparation, it’s ready in minutes!  Check out the recipe below!
