Thai Shrimp Curry with a Kick


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!

  • 24 uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup finely diced red onion

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated gingerroot

  • 1 lime, juiced (Optional)

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Hunt's® Diced Tomatoes, drained

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

  • 8 leaves Thai basil, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro (Optional)

  • 1 lime, quartered (Optional)


  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.
