Best Shrimp Curry Recipe ever – This simple shrimp curry recipe is easy and quick and there’s plenty of fragrant coconut sauce for the rice! Ready in less than half an hour. This is one of those fast curry recipes.

Shrimp cook very quickly, about 2 minutes when peeled. (Make sure you pop the shrimp tails off before adding to the pan.) It’s also fairly healthy.  The curry flavor is subtle yet richly flavored and complements shrimp perfectly. It has a very authentic taste and is a very easy meal to prepare when you are in a hurry.

Quick and Easy Curry Recipe

This shrimp curry is made with coconut milk and fragrant Indian spices, that you can make any day of the week. A typical curry might have a mixture of garlic, shallots, chiles, lime, sugar, and ginger. This easier version leaves out the lime and sugar, but benefits from the addition of a couple of tablespoons of fish sauce at the end. It is brightly flavored and so easy to toss together on a weeknight.
