This curry recipe is easy, delicious, and comes together in no time.
Ingredients You Will Need:
- Canned diced tomatoes: Use one that has no added sugar in it.
- Olive oil: To saute the vegetables.
- Onion, garlic, and ginger: Key ingredients for any good curry out there.
- Curry powder: Use a good quality curry powder, preferably from an Indian grocery store or spice retailer.
- Fish broth: Chicken broth can also be used.
- Coconut cream: Gives the curry a luxurious richness and creaminess, with none of the heavy cream or dairy.
- Shrimp: Large, raw shrimp with their tails removed. Do not use frozen or pre-cooked shrimp.
- Salt and pepper: To taste.
Instructions For Easy Shrimp Curry Recipe:
Start by blending your tomatoes until an almost liquid texture remains. Next, add the olive oil into a non-stick pan and place it over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion, garlic, ginger, and curry powder and cook for a minute. Add the fish broth and blended tomatoes and bring it to a boil. Once it boils, reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and let it simmer for five minutes.
Tips To Make The Best Recipe:
- Frozen shrimp will work, provided they are not pre-cooked and have been thawed to room temperature.
- You can use coconut milk or coconut cream. The latter will yield a slightly thicker and creamier curry.
- This curry is not overly spicy, so add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper, if desired.
Storing, freezing, and reheating:
- To store: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to five days.
- To freeze: Place the cooled curry in an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to 6 months.
- Reheating: Either microwave the curry for 30-40 seconds or in a small saucepan until warm.
