Thai Kitchen: Red Curry Shrimp

Chinese New Year is on February 10 through the 24th.  I love all Asian foods so I will definitely be cooking a lot of stir fries in the month of February as part of the celebration.  The folks at Thai Kitchen and Simply Asia gave me some wonderful products to try out from their amazing line of prepared pastes and sauces.   I knew it was my opportunity to try prepared red curry paste.  I adapted their Red Curry Shrimp recipe and had dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes.  That means with Thai Kitchen and Simply Asia products you can make your own homemade Asian dishes (better than any take out) for a fraction of the price. 

1lb of deveined and cleaned shrimp 
1-2 cloves garlic minced
1 inch fresh ginger minced or grated
1 bell pepper chopped into large pieces
1-2 stalks of celery chopped into large pieces
1 onion chopped into large pieces
2 Tbs Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste
2-3 Tbs Thai Kitchen Fish Sauce
1 can Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk
1 Tbs brown sugar
1 bunch of scallions chopped
1 heaping handful of Thai basil leaves or regular basil leaves

In a large wok or skillet heat 1 heaping Tbs of canola oil.  Saute peppers, celery, onion, ginger and garlic for 1-2 minutes.  Then add cleaned shrimp and saute for another minute.  

Next add Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste, brown sugar and red chili flakes.  Saute for 3-4 minutes.  Finally add Thai Kitchen Fish Sauce and Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk.  Simmer for 3-5 minutes until shrimp is cooked.  Taste for seasoning and serve with rice or noodles.  Enjoy.

  17. Eating healthier doesn't have to require some rigid, miserable diet and counting calories in an app. Blenders, air fryers, and juicers are simple appliance buys that can transform the way you eat. If you're big on the taste of fruits and veggies already spinach taste, juicing is a great way to squeeze the most nutrients out of the stuff you already love. Drinking a green juice is way faster than eating a salad in the car — not to mention those citrus drinks are so refreshing.
