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 tablespoons of fish sauce at the end. It is brightly flavored, and so easy to toss together on a weeknight.
