Quick and easy thai prawn curry with vegetables. Served with a small bowl of rice and a side salad.

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 30 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings


1-2 tablespoons organic cold-pressed coconut oil

1 scallions chopped

1 medium onion chopped

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1-2 tsps ground turmeric (dry powder, or fresh)

2 bell peppers chopped into 3 cm chunks

1 cup mange tout, sliced in half

2-4 tbsp Thai red curry paste

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 lb (or as required) shrimp, peeled and de-veined

6 oz light coconut milk

2 tsp fish sauce

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Organic sea salt to taste

1-2 green or red chilies sliced up (or to taste)


1In a large nonstick skillet, heat the coconut oil (or cold pressed organic olive oil ) on medium heat.

2Add the red curry paste and sauté one minute.

3Add the garlic, onions, cumin, turmeric and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

4Add the coconut milk, chilies, fish sauce and mix well. Simmer about 3-4 minutes. Add a little water to dilute if your coconut milk is quite thick.

5Add the shrimp and cook for a further 10-15 minutes – making sure that the shrimp is fully cooked. The coconut milk should be bubbling.

6Remove from heat, and sprinkle the cilantro and scallions over the top. Serve with a small bowl of rice per person and a side green salad.
