Thai Green Curry with Shrimp

One of the reasons I taught myself how to cook is that whenever I find a dish I really love, I want to learn how to make it, so I can eat it any time I like. Thai Green Curry is a meal I can eat by the bucket. Naturally I was on the hunt for a great recipe and I found it. Of course I had to share it with you guys immediately!


What you’ll need:

  • 1 to 1/2 pounds large shrimp, tails on
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (or canola oil)
  • 1/4 cup green curry paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 package frozen sugar snap peas
  • 14 oz coconut milk
  • 1/4 basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Cook curry paste, ginger, and lime zest until heated through, stirring, for 1 minute. Add onions and salt, stir and cook for another 3 minutes.


Add bell pepper and stir to combine.

Add chicken stock and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Add shrimp, coconut milk and snap peas, and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer for 5 minutes. Be sure not to bring to a boil. Stir in basil and lime juice. Serve with white rice or Basmati rice.


Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
