My Favorite Thai Red Shrimp Curry

This is my personal favorite curry. I adore red curry with shrimp. I have changed this dish to suit my taste buds. Another quick and easy to make dish, that never disappoints. I use collasal shrimps in this dish but you could use jumbo shrimps. It's a great meal served with rice but is just as nice served with cellaphane noodles.

I could have eaten the whole pot! It was sooooo good ~ I added water chestnuts, and about 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and garnished with chives and cilantro. Made for Newest Tag (now Rookie Recipes!)

While this is tasty, there is nothing in the list of ingredients that makes it a curry. No curry paste, no typical curry spices (cumin, coriander, cayenne, turmeric, cardamom). I added a TB of red curry paste to it to make it actually taste like curry.
