I saved this recipe from an issue of Canadian Living a while back. It is one I will save for surprise guests because it was a delicious meal that came together unbelievably quickly. Often times, magazines feature "quick and easy" meals that are anything but (or filled with random pre-made ingredients), but this one is great! With just 5 minutes of marinating and another 5 minutes in the pan, this delicious shrimp recipe can be on the table as fast as a grilled cheese sandwich.
2/3 Cup coconut milk1 Tblsp fish sauce
1-1/2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp brown sugar, packed
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 lb (454 g) thawed peeled deveined raw/thawed shrimp
1 red pepper, diced
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 Cup cilantro, chopped
In large bowl, combine together coconut milk, fish sauce, curry powder, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Add shrimp, red pepper, green onions and cilantro. Stir until well-coated and let stand for 5 minutes.
In wok or large pan, stir-fry shrimp mixture over medium-high heat until shrimp are pink, about 5-6 minutes.
