Green Curry Shrimp

My favorite Thai curry is green curry, especially if it's made with homemade curry paste! I made this recipe in school a couple of years back and it definitely stuck with me. This recipe is quite basic, if you want to add more vegetables you certainly can. Bell peppers, carrots, eggplant, etc!


Green Curry Shrimp

1 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup onions, diced
1 lb shrimp, peeled and patted dry
1 cup coconut milk
5 tablespoons green curry paste {recipe below}
1 teaspoon fish sauce


  • In a pan over medium heat add the olive and onion. Cook while stirring for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the shrimp to the pan and saute for several minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are pink.
  • Turn the heat down to low and pour in the coconut milk along with the green curry paste and fish sauce.
  • Once the coconut milk has slightly thickened and the paste is bound with the sauce turn off the heat. Serve with fluffy rice and steamed sugar snap peas.


Green Curry Paste

2 poblano peppers, seeded
4 serrano chili peppers, seeded
1 jalapeno, seeded
6 cloves garlic
1/4 cup onion
1 stalk lemongrass, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon fish sauce

  • Using a blender or food processor combine all of the ingredients and mix until smooth.


Enjoy!
