I was given permission to share his shrimp and red curry noodles recipe from the cookbook with you today.
Delicious Red Curry Shrimp Noodles
I just love curry as a dish to change things up and try something new because it is so full of flavor. The noodles add a familiar comfort food element and the shrimp and veggies help keep the dish well rounded.
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/2 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1/4 cup yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 orange bell pepper, sliced
- 1/4 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
- 1/4 cup broccoli tops
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
- 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 cup rice noodles, cooked
- 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
- 2 green onions, sliced
- kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
Light coconut milk will work fine but I like to use full fat coconut milk for a creamier sauce on the Thai red curry noodles.
If you don’t have coconut oil, you can substitute another neutral oil such as vegetable oil or olive oil.
How To Make Shrimp Curry Noodles
While there are a lot of ingredients in this shrimp and noodle bowl, it is not hard to make. It is basically just noodles, shrimp, tons of vegetables, and a few spices. The loads of fresh veggies keep it healthy and the shrimp and rice noodles make it quick and easy to fix.
For this shrimp and noodle bowl, you just pan saute the shrimp in a large skillet with half the coconut oil. Remove those from heat and keep covered. Then pan saute the veggies in the same pan with the rest of the coconut oil. In a large saucepan, cook your spices in the coconut milk, broth, fish sauce, and lime juice to create a very favorful, rich red curry broth. The cilantro and green onions garnish is such an excellent, fresh way to finish off this shrimp and red curry noodles recipe. Garnish the noodle dish with lime wedges (optional).
