earlier this week i was looking for an easy weeknight recipe that would satisfy and also provide tasty leftovers for lunch the next day. well, phillip and i struck gold with a coconut curry shrimp recipe that had been hiding in my recipe book. to no surprise, it actually originated from fellow food blogger ree drummond, and the unarguable fact that this recipe is delicious should also not be a surprise.
i got done prepping all the ingredients when phillip walked in the door just in time for cooking and assembling. our walk the moon album was spinning on the record player while he prepared the shrimp and sauce and i finished up the rice and got the table set.
we sat down and dug in, remembering exactly how good this meal is. phillip was almost speechless between bites! this recipe is quick, delicious, and filling. it doesn’t take many scoops of rice and shrimp and sauce to satisfy your taste buds and your hungry stomach. as usual, i pretty much doubled up on the garlic and the curry because who doesn’t like a little punch at the end of each bite. also, don’t be afraid to go a bit spicier since the coconut milk will definitely sweeten the dish considerably. enjoy!
