Thai Red Curry with Shrimp

Thai Red Curry with Shrimp

I missed the Thai curries we used to enjoy in the U.S., but in Korea, restaurants charge a lot just because they are made with imported products. So I decided to make my own!

Developed by:


  • 16 medium uncooked shrimp
  • 1 bell pepper, cut into large chunks
  • 1 medium onion, cubed
  • 1/2 zucchini, cubed
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
  • 1 16 oz. can coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


    Stir garlic
  1. In a large wok, heat oil and stir-fry garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Add all the vegetables
  3. Add bell peppers, onions and zucchini and stir for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add curry paste and stir
  5. Add red curry paste to the mixture and stir to coat the ingredients.
  6. Pour coconut milk
  7. Pour coconut milk and stir to distribute the curry paste. Reduce heat to simmer and add fish sauce and peanut butter. Simmer for about 15 minutes.
  8. Cook shrimp
  9. Add shrimp and cook about 2-3 minutes, until shrimp are done. Serve with rice.

Notes & Tips

You can buy curry paste from stores specializing in imported products. We got ours from You can control the spiciness by adjusting the amount of curry paste. Coconut milk was from Emart. We use frozen shrimp from Costco. When using frozen shrimp, defrost them first by soaking in water.
