My Favorite Thai Red Shrimp Curry

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

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!)
