    This delicious dish will look and taste like it is professionally done, but actually is so simple to make! The flavors are rich and delicate, like all great Thai cuisine. It is slightly sweet and slightly spicy, harmonizing wonderfully with the shrimp. Eat it by itself or serve it over your favorite pasta.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric




    • 1 tablespoon minced gingerroot (OR 1 teasp. ground ginger)
    • 1 cup chopped plum tomato
    • 3 tablespoons oil, for stir-frying (preferably wok oil)
    • 1/4 teaspoon chili paste with garlic or 2 minced garlic cloves
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (OR 1tsp. dry cilantro)
    • 6 ounces thin whole wheat spaghetti


    1. 1
      Rinse the shrimp under warm running water. Cut in half lengthwise. Add to the marinade ingredients and marinate the shrimp for 25 minutes in the refrigerator. Whisk together the coconut milk, vinegar, honey, and the crushed red pepper. Set aside. Prepare the ginger and tomatoes.
    2. 2
      Heat the wok over medium-high to high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the shrimp. Stir-fry until they turn pink. Remove from the pan.
    3. 3
      Add 1 tablespoon oil to the wok. When the oil is hot, add the minced ginger. Stir-fry until aromatic (about 30 seconds). If using ground ginger, simply mix it into the tomatoes and add the tomatoes to the wok. Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the sauce. When the sauce is bubbling, add the shrimp. Stir in the chili paste or garlic. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Cook the pasta separately as directed. Serve over the cooked spaghetti or stir the cooked pasta right into the shrimp mixture. Garnish with cilantro and enjoy!

      This is definitely a winning recipe. I LOVE the flavorful sauce. Slicing the shrimp in half was strange, but the result was cool- the shrimp curled up and looked like little calamari rings. Served over udon noodles.

      Wowza! This recipe is fabulous. It is spicy and full of flavor. I love the spaghetti noodles addition, because they are great with the sauce. I wasn't sure about slicing all the shrimp in half, but it worked very nicely. This great recipe heads into my best-of-the-best file. Thank you!
