Perfect for a weeknight dinner, this simple coconut curry shrimp recipe is made with easy-to-find ingredients and has a creamy, flavorful sauce with just a little heat and a hint of sweetness.
Loads of garlic and fresh ginger, along with curry powder, turmeric and a dash of sriracha combine with coconut milk, ketchup and a splash of orange juice to make the sauce.
A few minutes of simmering will bring those flavors together, then all that's left to do is cook the shrimp until tender and finish the dish with a handful of chopped scallions and fresh cilantro.
You'll definitely want to serve this dish over steamed rice (we happen to like basmati) to be sure you soak up every drop of the yummy sauce.
Shrimp is always a great choice for a quick weeknight dinner. Try these!
