"Shrimp, mushrooms and tomatoes simmered in a coconut-curry broth, with a bit of a 'kick.' I like to serve this with Jasmine rice, but any rice will do!"

  1. Sprinkle shrimp with salt and cayenne pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the red onion and cook for 1 minute. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 30 seconds. Add the lime juice and shrimp and cook until shrimp turn pink, about 1 minute per side. Transfer shrimp to a small bowl.
  3. Pour diced tomatoes, mushrooms, chicken broth, and crushed red pepper into the pan. Cook until mushrooms begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk, curry powder, fish sauce, and Thai basil. Cook until mixture has heated through. Transfer shrimp back to the pan, and cook for 1 minute more.
  4. Serve with a lime wedge and garnish with cilantro, if desired.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you can't find Thai basil, regular basil will do. If you like things on the spicy side, adjust the crushed red pepper to your liking.
