Red Curry with Shrimp and Green Beans

Break out the company chopsticks

Kroger has had some really crazy stuff on clearance lately. This last trip found some coconut milk and red curry paste marked down.

We used rice noodles but this would work equally well over white or brown rice. To cook rice noodles just divide as much as needed in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Then wait until the noodles get soft and stretchy, about 20 minutes.

Red Curry with Shrimp and Green Beans

  • 1 lb shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 2 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp red curry paste
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 3 cups white mushrooms quartered
  • 2 cups green beans snapped into bite sized pieces
  • 1 lime
  • 2 jalapenos sliced into thin strips
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped

Pour 1/3 coconut milk in a wok or large chef’s pan. Cook over medium heat until it separates and appears oily on the surface. Add the curry paste, sugar and fish sauce and mix well cooking for a minute. Add the mushrooms and cook for two minutes. Add the remaining coconut milk and zest of the lime and bring to a boil. Add the greens beans and half the cilantro. Cook for four minutes then add the shrimp, half the jalapeno slices and juice of the lime. Cook until shrimp is done, about four minutes. Serve curry over a bowl of rice noodles or rice garnished with more jalapeno slices and cilantro.

    Kroger! I haven’t been to a Kroger in ages. This looks delicious. I think I’d prefer the noodles, but rice sounds good too.

  4. Wow… This looks great. I love the idea of serving it over noodles instead of rice πŸ™‚

    Looks enticing as always! Nice colors. I think Kroger is great but we don’t have one in Pittsburgh.

  7. What a fabulous curry recipe. In my stock cupboard I have coconut milk, and fish sauce in the fridge. I think it needs to get done:)

    We had Thai last night! I’ve never tried red curry, we always do the green curry. Sounds like something I have to try.

    Love, LOVE anything with curry and anything with coconut milk. This looks great – and the shrimp appear to be the star of the show – love this ——

    I haven’t been to Koger in 20 years! I was always surprised at the differences between the stores in Atlanta – I think they were good at looking at their demographic and stocking the shelves accordingly.

  12. deliciously spicy!
