Recipe – Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp


I found this recipe on one of my new favorite sites:  They have TONS of recipes, searchable by name, category, weight watcher point value, etc.  I will be trying this one over the weekend.  Enjoy…

(For “points” people, the point value listed does not include rice)

Here’s another shrimp dish with the sweetness of coconut milk which compliments the spiciness of the red curry paste in this simple dish. Serve this over jasmine rice for a complete meal. If you’ve never used fish sauce before, don’t let the smell fool you. It blends with the other flavors and really adds to this dish.
