Ingredients :

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 pounds wild-caught shrimp, defrosted (peeled and deveined)
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 large red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • ⅔ cup Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup canned coconut milk
  • Cooked rice or noodles, optional


Instructions :

  • Heat coconut oil to medium-high heat in a large stir-fry pan or wok. Add garlic and onion, saute for 4-5 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add curry powder, shrimp, bell pepper and carrots. Stir to evenly coat and cook 5–7 minutes until shrimp is opaque white.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add snow peas, ginger, yogurt and coconut milk. Stir to combine and bring to a low boil. Remove from heat and serve over cooked rice or noodles.


Notes :

  1. For dairy-free substitute yogurt with extra 1/4 cup of coconut milk
  2. Make sure to add the spices to the oil and not the liquid. As I said before it makes a big difference to the flavor!
  3. If you’re serving this with rice or noodles cook them ahead of time according to packet instructions.
  4. Feel free to add extra heat in the form of fresh chilies or powder. Make sure to add them with the shrimp and veggies.
  5. You could use sugar snap peas or peas instead of snow peas
  6. Use high-quality wild-caught shrimp (fresh or frozen) for best flavor. Cheaper varieties often hold a lot of water and shrink a lot when cooking.
