Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp



Love this shrimp dish, it has the sweetness of coconut milk which compliments so well with 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.
