Thai inspired coconut and ginger shrimp curry recipe!
Easy to make dinner ideas are always welcome and that’s why I love this Thai curry recipe, it’s layered with flavors and has just the right amount of moreish that skirts around complete comfort food.
I’ve recently become a fan of La Baleine Essentiel, it’s is the world’s first low sodium salt directly from the sea, with 50% less sodium when compared to everyday table salt. It is truly set apart as the perfect sea salt choice with the bonus of added calcium, potassium, and magnesium, all while maintaining that natural sea salt flavor that makes your food taste gorgeous.

Can I substitute the shrimp for another protein in this shrimp curry recipe?
While this recipe uses shrimp as the protein of choice, if you prefer, you can substitute the shrimp with a nice white fish, such as cod, or you can use boneless, skinless chicken instead.
Do I need to thaw shrimp before I cook it?
Yes, you do need to thaw frozen shrimp before cooking. This is a quick process that only takes about 20 minutes to do. Simply leave the shrimp at room temperature for 10 to 20 minutes and the shrimp will be defrosted yet just cold and ready to cook.
How can I tell if the shrimp are cooked?
Properly cooked shrimp will become slightly white in color and opaque. If the flesh becomes a bright white, then it has been overcooked. Shrimp does not take long to cook, making it a quick and easy protein to cook and add to recipes.
