Green Curry Shrimp
Green Curry Noodles with Shrimp
Who doesn't love a good curry?
This dish only takes 15 minutes to throw together, once the curry has been prepped. Plan ahead to enjoy this meal in very little time. I make a large batch and freeze it for later use. See the post I did on coconut green curry for full details. There you'll learn the motivation behind this nutrient packed recipe. It's perfect on days when I realize I did't get enough healthy greens in my diet and need to pack them in.
The green beans, broccoli and spinach, combined with cilantro and green curry lend to a meal full of vitamins, K, C, A and B6. There's also plenty of minerals like calcium, folate and magnesium. The cilantro is rich in flavonoids and phytonutrients and can help in detoxification while adding a cooling element.
I used shrimp as the protein for this dish but feel free to change it up with chicken or meat. Thai dishes often include pork or beef.
6 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
turmeric to taste
salt to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
noodles (shirataki, soba, or rice)
1 head broccoli
12 ounces green beans
5 ounces spinach
3 ounces green curry paste
2 cans coconut milk (13.5 ounces each)
2 cups water
2 cups cilantro
salt & pepper to taste
Place green curry in a small saucepan over low and allow it to heat through.
Season shrimp with turmeric, salt and pepper. Sauté them over medium heat in a small pan. Once cooked through, set aside and quickly heat carrot and other noodles in pan.
To plate, place noodles in a bowl and top with sauce and shrimp. It's that easy!
