This recipe from December 2010 Bon Appetit was just as good as it looked. DH and I really enjoyed it. Thanks to many of the ingredients going into the food processor, prep was not too laborious. Although the recipe did not specify, we served over jasmine rice, which worked really well.

Directions

  1. Cook green beans in large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain. Cut 2 inches from bottom of each lemongrass stalk; discard tops. Thinly slice bottom pieces; place in processor. Add next five ingredients, chopped basil, and 1/4 cup water. Blend until paste forms.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add curry paste; cook, stirring often, until dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in coconut milk; bring to simmer. Add shrimp; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until shrimp are just opaque in center, about 5 minutes. Add green beans; stir to heat through. Season curry with salt and pepper. Transfer curry to serving bowl; garnish with basil. Serve with lime wedges (we served over jasmine rice).
