Hola Amigos, I hope you had a great weekend among family and friends celebrating Thanksgiving and now are ready to embrace the coming Holidays full of energy and patience! Yes patience as the Holiday Season approaches, we need to arm ourselves with an extra dose just in case someone out of nowhere takes our parking spot that we were waiting on for the last 5 , in case we can't find "the it" toy the store guaranteed it will be in stock when you called earlier, in case you can't find that one bad bulb which is keeping your whole strand of lights in the dark!!!
This week I'm looking over my Pinterest Boards for some inspiration starting with dinner. I think my family had enough turkey for now so I found this delicious recipe for Thai Coconut Curry here at Group Recipes. I tweaked it a little bit to make it more to our liking and it was a hit! This is my version of the original.
Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp
3 TBS of Olive Oil or Butter
1 Medium Onion Chopped
2 Cloves of Garlic choppend
3 Tsps of your favorite Curry Spice
1/2 Cup of Water
1/2 Cup Diced of Potatoes and 1/2 Cup of Diced Carrots
1 Pound of Cooked Shrimp (if you prefer uncooked it's ok too)
1 Can Unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 Cup heavy whipping cream
Parsley or Green Onions
Pinch of Cinnamon (optional)
In a skillet heat Olive Oil or Butter. Add the Medium Chopped Onion until they start turning transparent. Add the Garlic and cook another minute or two, being careful for it not to burn. To help cooking without adding more fat to the recipe, you can add a bit of your 1/2 cup of Water as needed.
Add your Curry Spice, Mix and add a bit more water to the mix if it starts getting too lumpy. Cook for about 5 minutes stirring constantly. Remember is important for the mix not to burn
It's time now to add the Can of Coconut Milk and Diced Potatoes and Carrots. Season the Mix with Salt to taste and a Pinch of Cinnamon. I diced them very small so they cook faster. Cook at medium heat until vegetables are cooked. If you are in a hurry, by all means use canned vegetables. It will reduce the cook time immensely since you basically would keep it in the stove long enough for the ingredients to heat up.
Once the veggies are cooked, add the Shrimp and the Heavy Whipping Cream, stir until thickened. and remove from heat. Garnish it with Parsley or Green Onions.
Remember, everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love
