Thai Green Curry Shrimp

A quick and easy Thai Green Curry Shrimp dish | @MJsKitchen

[Jump to recipe]

Most of the time when we get a craving for Thai food we go out to eat.  However, this Thai Green Curry Shrimp dish is the exception.  I found a basic Thai Shrimp Curry recipe years ago in Bon Appetit (Feb 2008).  I loved the “base” of the dish (the coconut milk, broth, and Thai flavorings), but I wanted more vegetables. The Bon Appetit recipe only uses onion and tomato, and I’m not a fan of tomato in my curry dishes, especially green curries. So as you can see here, I’ve changed it up a bit.

Cucumber & Onion Salad with Smoked Salmon

 

Due to a kitchen remodel I’ll be without a kitchen for a few weeks, so I’ve asked some friends to keep my virtual kitchen going with some of their fabulous recipes.  My first friend is Su Anne, a very special person in my life. Su Anne and I met in college back in the 70’s and she is one of those friends that you have for a lifetime.

Shortly after Bobby and I moved to New Mexico, Su Anne moved to NM, a different town, but only an hour away.  She met a wonderful man, married, and settled down – sort of. 🙂  Every time we get together, we talk food, cook food, and eat food; therefore, the perfect friend to get this series started.
