This Thai Red Curry with Shrimp is one of my very very very favorite quicky recipes. Heck, it's just plain one of my favorite recipes. Bonus points for being quick. The flavor is on point, the vegetables are crunch and yummy, the shrimp adds the perfect amount of sweetness and protein. I just can't gush enough about this dish. My kids even like it. Which, I honestly can't decide whether that's good or bad since it means I have to share. Even the two year old gets in on a bold of curry!
If you've never made Thai food, this is the perfect place to start. It all comes together in a few minutes, and is nearly impossible to mess up. It's not spicy (although you could totally add some peppers if you wanted!) and my kids really do gobble it up. Traditionally red curry is served over rice, but you can enjoy it as soup (that's what I usually do) or rice noodles. Even potato!
Feel free to use whatever protein you like, but my strong suggestion is shrimp. Because, shrimp! If I'm in a big rush, I like to get mine already peeled (who has time?!). If you go with pre-cooked, that works too, just make sure you're adding it right at the end and only long enough to heat through. I'd be so sad if your shrimp ended up over cooked. I'm sad just thinking about it!
You can also also pick up pre sliced veggies. I'm partial to green and red bell pepper, carrots, and snow peas, but by all means - if you want to try something else, go for it! And do please leave a comment letting us know what you tried! I strongly suggest using fresh vegetables over frozen. Nothing against frozen veggies (big love to the frozen veggies, I wouldn't make it through a lot of dinners without them!), but part of this recipe's appeal is that the veggies are only cooked a short time, so they're still crispy and have great texture. *crunch = love*
