Directions See How It's Made
- Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and curry paste. Stir frequently until onions soften, 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place shrimp in a sieve. Rinse under cold running water until any ice crystals melt. Once onions are softened, stir in coconut milk and honey. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes.
- Meanwhile, remove and discard skin from chicken, then pull off meat and tear or cut into bite-size chunks. Slice peppers into thick pieces. Coarsely chop cilantro. Stir shrimp, chicken, peppers and peas into coconut-milk mixture.
- Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are hot, 3 to 5 minutes. If using uncooked shrimp, cook until pink, about 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in coriander. Slice lime into wedges and serve alongside curry. Great with jasmine rice.
