My cousin Dayle shared this Coconut Curry Shrimp recipe with me to include in my Recipe Book. At first, I was a little hesitant because my wife doesn’t like shellfish and we rarely eat dishes made with curry.
But I decided to give it a shot as Dayle told me this was one of her favorite dishes to make for her family. And boy was she right! This is a great tasting recipe. You need to trust me on this one.
The hardest part of this recipe is to make sure you don't overcook the shrimp. Raw shrimp takes approximately 4 to 5 minutes to cook. Just keep an eye on them and stir occasionally.
