Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp




Here's another shrimp dish with the sweetness of coconut milk which compliments the spiciness of the red curry paste in this simple dish. Serve this over jasmine rice for a complete meal. If you've never used fish sauce before, don't let the smell fool you. It blends with the other flavors and really adds to this dish.

    5. Yum. I'll be making this next week for sure. Fish sauce is great! Not to eat plain, but since I started using using it a few months back I became a believer.

    7. This looks amazing! Think I'll head to Trader Joe's to buy some shrimp. I'll have to make 2 pans - one with chicken, since the hubs won't eat shrimp.

    14. Made this tonight, I really enjoyed it. I added some sugar snap peas with the shrimps just to up the veggie content of the recipe :)

      ReplyDelete
    15. This looks SO good! I have just started my weight loss journey, and am SO happy to have found your blog.

      @mremmers Glad you liked it!

    18. I have a friend who would love this dish! Thanks for sharing it! We will have to try it.

      ReplyDelete
    19. I adore thai curry! I was wondering...what do you do with the leftover coconut milk (since a can is more than 6 oz)? I hate wasting it so I normally make a dish that uses the whole can, but I would love to hear if you have another idea!

      ReplyDelete
    20. WOW ~ I really NEED to try this - FANTASTIC recipe, Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    21. This looks so yummy. I can't seem to find lite coconut milk anywhere, where can I get it?

      ReplyDelete
    22. @Sophie- My husband loves coconut rice, so I mix 1 cup of coconut milk, 1 cup water, and 1 cup of rice along with a little salt and sesame oil, he loves it.

      Do you have an international section in your supermarket? I no I find it in the Asian aisle and in the latin aisle. Trader Joe's also sells it. If not, you can buy it online.

    23. Hi! I just found your blog - new follower =D
      This looks delicious! Can't wait to try it.

      ReplyDelete
    24. Another recipe knocked out of the park, Gina! Absolutely fantastic. It was so fast! The entire meal came together in 20 minutes and most of that was the rice cooker working. I served it with jasmine rice and fresh spinach. The sauce wilted the spinach perfectly. My entire family really loved it. My 3 year old kept telling me how great it was! LOVE your blog. You make losing weight easy!

      ReplyDelete
    25. That's awesome! I love that your 3 year old enjoyed it!!

      ReplyDelete
    26. Made this and added diced mango! Super yummy. Thanks Gina, you never let me down!

      ReplyDelete
    27. Thank You, Gina for this recipe!!!! I was so impressed with myself for making Thai food!!! My husband and I are big fans of Thai food and he said this was better than any restaurant and I used frozen shrimp!!! I just found your site and I am so excited to cook new recipes for my family!! You are the best! :)

      ReplyDelete
    28. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I made it for the first time tonight and it worked well. The only thing that I changed was adding a some indian "masala" to spice it up a bit.

      ReplyDelete
    29. I made this on Monday night and it will become a staple in our household. My husband said he was mad at me for not making enough for seconds! LOL! Fantastic flavor and just enough spice to make it fun. My 7 yr. old daughter loved it, too! Thank you for posting such amazing recipes. I am making your Dijon Lime Chicken Thighs tonight and I have been making your smoothies every morning this week for my daughter and I. Keep it up!!!! :-)

      ReplyDelete
    30. Amazing recipe! My husband and 7 yr. old daughter loved it! It is going in the rotation. Thanks for creating such wonderful, flavorful WW recipes, so I can copy them and stay on plan.

      I am looking forward to eating this dish again next week.

      Keep up the great work!

      ReplyDelete
    31. That's great Paige!! Peach-Mango smoothie coming next!!

      ReplyDelete
    32. Alright Gina--made this on the weekend, ate the leftovers last night and I'm hooked. Loved it, could easily eat it weekly! Thank you!

      One question though--I've never, ever used red curry paste before and I love the flavour, but am not really finding many other recipes around using it either on your blog or others that I read. I mean, I could just keep making this single dish, but do you have any other ideas for dishes using the curry? I've got half a can of coconut milk in the fridge and a tub of curry paste that are just waiting to be used!

      ReplyDelete
    33. Coconut milk never lasts in my house! My husband loves coconut rice so I use the leftover coconut milk to make it. I will post some more Thai dishes soon to help you use up your red curry paste!! Glad you liked this as much as I did!

      ReplyDelete
    34. I just discovered your blog today, and made this shrimp dish tonight. It was delicious! I'm so glad I discovered your site!

      ReplyDelete
    35. Made this last night and loved it! My husband loved it too! Thank you for all your recipes, all the ones I've tried have been fantastic!

      Thanks!

    36. if this is not a stupid q ,what is cilantro?? is it only available in US??

      ReplyDelete
    37. No, it's available in many countries. Where are you from?

      ReplyDelete
    38. Made this tonight- my kids loved it as much as I did - so easy and looks beautiful and tastes fantastic. This is going into the weekly rotation for sure. thank you.

      ReplyDelete
    39. hi Gina, do u know how different fish sauce would be from oyster sauce? thats what i have on hand. it is 0 fat and 24 cal. thanks joanna

      ReplyDelete
    40. @Joanna, Oyster sauce is a thick, sweet sauce made from oysters. Fish sauce is a watery sauce made from anchovies.

      Oyster sauce is used in Chinese cuisine, while fish sauce is a staple in Thai and Vietnamese cooking.

      I don't think it would be a good replacement.

      ReplyDelete
    41. Cilantro is coriander in Ireland and the UK. Gina, could I ask if the 3 points is for the prawn dish without the rice? Thanks for a great website.

      ReplyDelete
    42. Apologies, I did'nt read the end of the recipe until now about the points in the rice. :-)

      ReplyDelete
    43. i tried to get the newsletter but for some reason it freezes in my email??? what else can i do.??

      ReplyDelete
    44. so yummy! my husband said to keep making it.

      ReplyDelete
    45. email keeps freezing, never heard that before. What email program are you using?

      ReplyDelete
    46. so happy to have found your blog. your photography is absolutely beautiful! I made this tonight and my husband went crazy over it. I served diced mango for dessert and it was the perfect ending.

      ReplyDelete
    47. @teresa- that really is the perfect ending!!

      ReplyDelete
    48. Yum! Made this for dinner last night. I planned pork chops for the kids because neither one likes shrimp. The older one snubbed the pork chop and went straight for this once the curry hit the pan. Only change is I added about 2-3 TBLS diced red peppers to the scallions, just for color.

      ReplyDelete
    49. Your kids are braver than mine! :)

      ReplyDelete
    50. I want to make this dish tomorrow but I can't find fish sauce ANYWHERE! I tried 4 different stores in my area. Can I leave it out?

      ReplyDelete
    51. Yes, you can leave it out, but I highly recommend buying it online if you can't find it in the store. Go to amazon! I linked it in the ingredient list so you know where to buy it.

      ReplyDelete
    52. When you make your coconut rice do you cook the rice in the 1 cup of coconut milk, 1 cup water, and 1 cup of rice along with a little salt and sesame oil? What do you serve this with? I am always looking for new ways to prepare rice! Oh, and do you use white or brown rice? Thanks so much! I love your site!

      ReplyDelete
    53. Cocount Rice- Yes, 1 cup jasmine rice, 1 cup water, 1 cup light coconut milk, a tsp sesame oil, and salt. I've made it with brown rice as well, but it tastes better with white.

      ReplyDelete
    54. We had this tasty goodness for dinner Friday. It was so good I wanted to eat my husband's share!! He was silly enough not to be home for dinner. I told him it was going to be fair game if it happened again!!!

      ReplyDelete
    55. This was so so good! I followed the recipe exactly (something I'm notorious for NOT doing) and it turned out fabulously yummy. Next time, I have to remember to shake the coconut milk, but otherwise, it was still so good. My husband loved it.

      ReplyDelete
    56. I am notorious for changing recipes myself!!

      ReplyDelete
    57. I made this tonight and it was wonderful! Great flavors and easy to prepare. I replaced the cilantro(do not like) with fresh garlic dill.
      I will be adding this to our favorite WW recipes. I can't wait to make it again!
      Thank you - I'm so happy I found your site!!

      ReplyDelete
    58. I just found your website this week and made this tonight. It was delicious!! My husband and I love Thai dishes and this was a big hit! Thanks!

    62. I have some shrimp in the freezer, I think I'll make this again this week!

      ReplyDelete
    63. I couldn't find the curry paste and would like to make this tonight. Anyone have suggestions on what spices I can add to get a similar or at least good flavor?

      ReplyDelete
    64. I suppose a little red pepper flakes or sriracha if you can't find it.

      ReplyDelete
    65. Hi there...I'm a new reader to your blog.

      I love coconut and I love curry. I might add a dash of coconut flakes too.

      Thanks for this recipe

      ReplyDelete
    66. The flavor of this dish is amazing! It's going into our regular rotation. Every recipe I've tried so far has been a winner! Thanks for your blog!

      ReplyDelete
    67. Hi Gina - I can't seem to figure out how you got 4 points for a whole cup of jasmine rice! On WW online is says it is 3 cups for 1/4th a cup....and when I put in the exact cal/fat/fiber of the bag I have...it's the same....3 points for 1 serving, which is 1/4th a cup.

      ReplyDelete
    68. 1/4 cup uncooked rice is 3 points. But rice expands when you cook it. So 1/4 cup uncooked rice will give you about 3/4 of a cup after it's cooked. If 1/4 cup of cooked rice was 3 points, I would be one unhappy lady!!

      ReplyDelete
    69. Oh....my.....

      I think I've found my home........

      so many recipes....so much time to try them!
      Thank you thank you thank you!!!

    70. babe... Its time to make this one again
      :P

      ReplyDelete
    71. I just stumbled across your website. This is the first recipe I have tried, but I will be making a grocery list today to try some more. This is absolutely delish!!!! LOVED IT! My husband couldn't believe it was healthy.

      ReplyDelete
    72. Wanted to let you know we absolutely LOVEEEE this recipe! We make it about every other week and serve it with jasmine rice!! THANKS!

      ReplyDelete
    73. Gina- I plan to make this tonight but bought oyster sauce instead of fish sauce (going off my bad memory since I left my list in the car). Do you think this will change the flavor drastically?

      ReplyDelete
    74. Yes, I would just leave it out, I wouldnt use oyster sauce. Very different!

      ReplyDelete
    75. This recipe is so simple and SO delicious! I can't believe how great it tastes! I'm about to try the post for the Spaghetti with Grape Tomatoes and Chicken tonight. Everything on this site is great! Thanks!!

      ReplyDelete
    76. I really liked how quick the sauce was and it felt like such a splurge! My kids loved it and had a blast smelling the flavors and cooking the sauce. I've made it twice already and it's only been a week and a half! Thanks

      ReplyDelete
    77. This recipe is so easy and sooooo good! Added about a tablespoon of brown sugar to bring out the sweetness of the coconut milk--better than take out and guilt free! Would NEVER guess this dish is so light and healthy! Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    78. I made this last night for dinner and it was fabulous, as most of the recipes I have tried on here have been. I added a few big leaves of sweet basil (shredded) and a chopped red bell pepper to it, and simmered with a kaffir lime leaf for a couple of minutes to try and mimic my favourite local Thai joint. It was excellent - thanks for the great recipe.

      ReplyDelete
    79. I made this tonight and I loved it! I couldn't find fish sauce so used oyster instead and it still tasted amazing. Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    80. Made this tonight. My husband is now a fan of Thai! Absolutely delicious and I didn't feel like it was a light meal. A little tiny bit of splenda added the bit of sweetness I love from my local thai place. Thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    81. Hi Gina, I'm making this one for dinner tonight. Can you prioritize this one for points plus totals when you get a moment? Thanks so much!

      ReplyDelete
    82. I made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I both loved it. The flavors are great! Thanks so much for sharing your recipes with us. I think life is too short to eat bland, boring, diet food!

      ReplyDelete
    83. So good and easy. I like my food a little spicier though. How much red curry paste would spice it up a little without making it inedible?

      ReplyDelete
    84. I agree Jan!

      Spice it to taste, I think the brand I have is milder.

      ReplyDelete
    85. This was delicious! I exchanged dinner for "house work." Both parties were quite happy with the results!

      ReplyDelete
    86. This is so awesome. My husband is always wanting Thia food and I fixed this you my daughter and him and they both totally enjoyed it. I also served stir fry vegetables and I totally recommend this recipe and I am not a seafood lover. I am learning but this definitely made it easy for me to eat, YUMMMMM.

      ReplyDelete
    87. Really enjoyed it! Best recipe I've tried off this site... up to 4. It really makes a large, flavorful, low point meal. Really tasty!

      ReplyDelete
    88. Made this tonight - really yummy!! I've just recently discovered your site, and it's great! Thanks for sharing all of your fabulous recipes!

      ReplyDelete
    89. This is one of my husband's favorite recipes! I've made it 3 times and I plan to make it a lot more in the future. Thank you for making healthy recipes for real families Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    90. Another big hit from Gina! I made this for dinner tonight and served it with leftover brown rice (I make a big batch and keep it to use through the week), gai lan sauteed with garlic and red pepper flakes. Super yummy!

      Thanks Gina. This is making my weight loss adventure quite painless.

      ReplyDelete
    91. What a delicious recipe! I was impressed by how quickly it came together. My husband raved about how gourmet it was. This has become a favorite. Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    92. My boyfriend just made this tonight! It was wonderful! After taking the first bite he said, "THANK YOU GINA!"

      ReplyDelete
    93. I bought frozen shrimp...are they okay to use or do you recommend defrosting them first? Excited to try this tonight!

      ReplyDelete
    94. Frozen shrimp works! But you must defrost them.

      ReplyDelete
    95. Tried this dish last! HUGE HIT!! We served it over whole wheat pasta, and the sauce from this dish, served as the "spaghetti sauce"... SOO GOOD! Another winner Gina! I am just loving your website, I've lost 6 lbs since I started WW and I thank your recipes for helping me! They make me look forward to eating healthy!

      ReplyDelete
    96. One of my husband's favorite's!

      ReplyDelete
    97. My husband and I LOVED this! Thank you! :)

      ReplyDelete
    98. I cannot wait to make this! Question, is the jasmine rice included in the points plus total? I read the recipe a million times and all the comments...I may have misread something? Thanks for all the work you do, this makes cooking on WW so much easier, it makes the dieting much more fun!

      ReplyDelete
    99. I just found this site and am so excited. I made this shrimp tonight with rice noodles and it was awesome. My husband doesn't know it was "light". Can't wait to try some more recipes. Thanks so much!

      ReplyDelete
    100. Yet another FAB recipe Gina!! I'm stalking your recipes lately and have another of yours on the menu for tonight. I made this last night and it was ADORED by all! I doubled the garlic but follow the rest as stated and served over long grain rice. Made a side of marinated roasted asparagus. Not a leftover bite in the house! 4 and 6 year old devoured too. Keep them coming!

      ReplyDelete
    101. No, that would be extra. If i don;t list it in the ingredients, then it's usually extra.

      ReplyDelete
    102. This was great! My husband, 10yr old and 6yr old loved it. I added some snow peas and bamboo shoots...yum!

      ReplyDelete
    103. Hi Gina, I have made a number of your meals and this one was my 12 year olds favorite. I was trying to find it on your site and was just wondering if I am missing your "search" mode for your site. I am having to go through every fish recipe in order to find the one I want. Am I missing something?

      ReplyDelete
    104. There's a search at the top right column.

      ReplyDelete
    105. And I'm so happy your 9 year old loves it! My teen is allergic to shrimp so I make it when she's eating out.

    106. Ali Shinnick2/5/11, 9:23 PM

      Made this one tonight over brown rice. YUM YUM YUM!! My 2 year old nearly cleaned her plate! (Maybe just a fluke, but I'll take it!) My curiosity got the better of me and I made the mistake of smelling the fish sauce-- absolutely PUTRID. Alas, I trust your judgment and used it anyway! It was SO good! Also, to those having a hard time finding red curry paste or fish sauce... I found both ingredients at Super Target in the Asian section.

      ReplyDelete
    107. Ali, lol, you don't want to smell the fish sauce!

      ReplyDelete
    108. Made this last night and it was wonderful!

      ReplyDelete
    109. I made this the other night and I added mushrooms and it was delicious! I can't wait to try more recipes.

      ReplyDelete
    110. Can I use yellow curry powder instead of red in this? I only have that kind. Would LOVE to try this with scallops!

      ReplyDelete
    111. I tried this last night and I can't tell you how much I LOVED it!!! I was amazingly good. And not just amazingly good for something low fat/low cal...just plain AWESOME!

      ReplyDelete
    112. Gina this is our favorite recipe..my hubby loves it!!!! I bought coconut milk from Goya that isn't labeled light. Is there a brand that is light specifically because we may not be eating light after all????!!!! Thanks Gina for all you do.....such adorable children and puppy!

      ReplyDelete
    113. Yes! Taste of Thai has a light one, Ive seen other brands as well including Trader Joes.

      ReplyDelete
    114. I made this for dinner last night and my boyfriend and I LOVED IT! The neighbor even came over to get a plate! Your recipes never disappoint! Thanks Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    115. Had to post a second time. This dish is awesome! It has become a staple meal, I make it at least once every two weeks. Thanks Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    116. Thanks for commenting... Twice!!

      ReplyDelete
    117. Hi Gina,
      thanks again for another yummy recipe. I adore coconut flavor and wanted to lick the plate after I was done. Hubby loved it as well. I added srichacha (5 calories per tsp) for more kick.

      ReplyDelete
    118. Gina,

      I'm so happy you're spending more time on this blog because it is, without question, the best resource for delicious recipes which just happen to also be Weight Watchers-friendly.

      Red curry with coconut milk is one of my favorite Thai sauces - I just made your version with some scallops that were languishing away in my freezer and it was exceptional! Next time I'll add a little more heat and kaffir lime leaves but it is wonderful as is.

      Thank you so much for your efforts - I look forward to every update!

      ReplyDelete
    119. I made this tonight and it was fabulous! I served it over rice with some edamame on the side. Even all 4 kids loved it! Thanks :)

      ReplyDelete
    120. I made this last night and it was GREAT! I am curious what kind (brand) of curry paste people are using. This is definately a keeper! Thanks Gina. I can't wait to try more of your recipes.

      ReplyDelete
    121. I used Thai Kitchen which is easy to find in Target and most supermarkets.

      ReplyDelete
    122. Made this last night and it was delicious. I used green curry paste because I had it on hand and added some blanched green beans. Husband LOVED it! Can't believe how quick it is to make.

      ReplyDelete
    123. Gina I absolutely adore your website!!! I just joined WW two weeks ago and was afraid because I'm such a foodie and love to cook. Thai is one of my favorites to eat out, thanks to you I just cooked it for the first time, and saved myself $$$ and points. I added red bell pepper, asparagus, fresh basil ,chopped fresh jalapeno and extra 1/2 TBS of the paste. Do I need to add points for the extra paste? My kids scraped their plates. We are making the pineapple bliss cupcakes NOW! So excited!! Thanks again for your site you are AMAZING.<3

      ReplyDelete
    124. I don't think extra points would effect the taste. Glad you enjoyed and saved money too!

      ReplyDelete
    125. Gina,

      I made this last night and now have some yummy lunch and dinner to look forward to for the next couple of days. I paired it up with the roasted broccoli and some whole wheat couscous (I wish I could post a picture to show how great this looks). I want to try so many of your recipes and with time I will. So glad I found your website.

      Thanks for the amazing blogging and all your hard work.

    127. This is very similar, but lighter, than a recipe I've made several times before. Delicious! I added stir fry vegetables and served it over shirataki noodles.

      ReplyDelete
    128. Where do you find fish sauce? This looks so good!!

      ReplyDelete
    129. It's in the Asian section of your supermarket, Thai Kitchen now carries it in most stores and even Target.

      ReplyDelete
    130. Gina- my mom and I are both on WW and tried this recipe last night- it was good! Thank you so much for all the great, tasty recipes you share with us. I honestly couldn't come up with this stuff and its been so helpful coming here when I want something "new" knowing you have so much varity to choose from. Thanks again from a satisfied girl and her mom!

      ReplyDelete
    131. I have to say I've tried some of your other recipes and loved them (Garlic Lime Pork, Asian Peanut Salad with Chicken) but this one bombed for me. I'm not sure if it was the shrimp or what. But, I thought it lacked something. And, I love coconut. But, 2 out 3 isn't bad. :)

    132. While eating this my 7 y/o daughter states "Mom, your the best cook EVER!" Thanks for great recipes my whole family loves.

    133. Super delicious! Found your site today, and will be making many of the recipes! Thanks for sharing!

    134. This sounds great! My kids have recently become shrimp fans, and they also like coconut, so this is a definite winner. They are not, however, fans of cilantro. Do you think parsley would be a good substitute?

    135. If I MAKE IT WITH CHICKEN DO I LEAVE THE FISH SAUCE OUT???

      ReplyDelete
    136. You are so wonderful to share these recipes with all of us. You are one of the reasons I have lost 51 lbs. on WW. Keep up the good work. Love you girl!

      ReplyDelete
    137. This was amazing. I think the only complaint I could have is that it tastes so good I want to eat all 4 servings by myself. :)

    138. I made this tonight and it was fantastic! I added water chestnuts for some crunch and a little crushed red pepper to spice it up a bit. Served with rice and sugar snap peas. So delicious! Thanks for another great recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    139. I loved this!!! I took some advice from the comments and added both sugar snap peas and red peppers. I also sauted my veggies and shrimp in coconut oil! Yummy! And, in the end I felt like it was too runny, so I added a little cornstarch mixed with cold water. I served mine with organic brown rice and it was fabulous. Too spicy for the kids, though! Thanks for the great new recipe!

    140. This was AWESOME! We really enjoyed this dish over couscous. Next time I make this (in the very near future), I'm going to add some more veggies like others suggested, and maybe some red pepper flakes for a kick. Thanks Gina!!

      P.S - I'm down 20 pounds! Your recipes really help sticking with the program.

    141. Gina Gina, u sure are making me look good. Another faboulous recipe. People are begining to think i can cook! Lol. The one change i made was to mix 1 tsp cornstarch to coconut milk to make the sauce a little thicker. U r the best.

      ReplyDelete
    142. Jennifer, I bet the snap peas make a great addition!

      September, love that name - good for you, 20 lbs!!!

      Cathy, I'm happy to hear that!!

    143. I bought Thai red curry sauce by mistake. Can I substitue it for the paste and what amount of the sauce equals the 1 tbsp of the paste? Does it change the Pts? Thanks for you great recipes and for the comments from your devoted fans. Add me to that list of "devoted fans"!

      ReplyDelete
    144. I'm not sure what the difference is as I haven't used the sauce.

      ReplyDelete
    145. I was very nervous to try this dish, because I have never had Thai food and the restaurants that serve Thai food I did not care for the smell. I am also not into very robust flavor, like rosemary or sage. I like gentle hints of flavors. This dish exceeded my expectation by far. It was soooooo delish.I ate it with Burghul Pilaf by Ziyad. It complemented each other well I could not believe that this dish is low in calories. I have tried a couple of your dishes and they are always good and very flavorful.That is always the hard part with trying to eat healthy or diet, the food is boring and bland. Thank you so for posting,
      sincerly the "PICKY EATER"

    146. does the fish sauce make a huge difference in the taste? if i left it out would it still be good? the sodium in fish sauce is ridiculously high and I am an avid sodium watcher. recipe sounds delish though! :)

      ReplyDelete
    147. made this tonight and it was so yummy! I added crushed peanuts to top it off...deeeelish!
      Thanks so much for your recipes!

      ReplyDelete
    148. If sodium is an issue, leave it out, it just won't taste as salty.

      ReplyDelete
    149. Where do I get fish sauce???

      ReplyDelete
    150. I'm making this tomorrow bu substituting the shrimp for tofu puffs. Can't wait, this looks delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    151. This was yummy! I added some lime when I served it.

      ReplyDelete
    152. I made this tonight with my fiance and we both LOVE it!!! Keep it up!

    153. I made this last night for our visitors and we loved it! Excellent flavors, filling and absolutely addictive! Thanks, Gina.

    154. I made this last night after finding you through Pinterest and my boyfriend and I both LOVED it! Thanks for such a great recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    155. Love pinterest! So glad you enjoyed it!

      ReplyDelete
    156. I made this twice in one week, it was so delicious! I used yellow curry paste as that's what I had, and the second time I didn't even have any cilantro. Loved it, loved it, loved it!

      ReplyDelete
    157. Gina - Thank you so much for all the gorgeous photos and delicious recipes. This is the 4th dish of yours I've made and they have all been winners. I just started WW a few weeks ago and your website has been a great help!

      For this recipe in particular, I felt like it needed to be bulked up with more vegetables to make it more filling as a meal with just rice accompanying. We added some chopped bell peppers and next time will add more veggies. We love a saucy curry though and felt this could have used more sauce.

      Any ideas on how to increase the sauce and keep the flavor without adding a ton more points?

      ReplyDelete
    158. Adding more sauce may increase the points a bit since it's mostly coconut milk. Adding more veggies is a great idea.

      ReplyDelete
    159. Just made this and it was very good! I really enjoyed it. I served it over Texmati rice and it was great with the sauce! I made a salad on the side with mixed greens and some thinly sliced orange bell pepper and carrot (bc that's what I had!) and this dressing - http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/lime-peanut-dressing-10000000258172/. It was a perfect complement and still low in calories! You could definitely add more veggies to the salad (broccoli, snap peas, etc.) but I used what I had! Thanks so much!

      ReplyDelete
    160. This was so easy. It was yummy and light!

      ReplyDelete
    161. I was in a cooking rut until I made this dish. It has all the things I love - plus I added a bit of basil which really kicked up the flavor. WOW! I really have never tried to cook Thai like this before and now I am hooked! Thanks for getting me back to my creative cooking self Gina....

      ReplyDelete
    162. This was so YUM! Tasted like my favorite curry from a restaurant. I added onion slices in the beginning and baby spinach at the end to up the veggie factor.

      ReplyDelete
    163. I'm making this sometime this week - BUT, I'm going to make the Paste myself from scratch so I'll let you know how that goes!

      ReplyDelete
    164. LOVE this!! So easy and so yummy! I added some extra veggies to it instead of the rice. You can really make this with any protein. Thanks Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    165. My husband said this was a keeper to put in my recipe binder. Thank you so much for this recipe and all your recipes. I never feel like we're dieting...just eating the way we should be and it all tastes so yummy!

      ReplyDelete
    166. Awesome, my husband loves this. Maybe I'll surprise him with this dish tomorrow!

      ReplyDelete
    167. This sounds amazing! I'm going to be making this for my parents and sister on Monday.

      Any idea whether or not yellow curry paste would work just as well here? It seems to have many of the same ingredients as red. I have a huge tub of it, and I don't make Indian/Thai food a whole lot, so I'd hate to go out and buy more.

      ReplyDelete
    168. Made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I both loved it. My husband is a very picky eater and his only request was not to change anything next time I made it.

      ReplyDelete
    169. This was so good and very filling. Thank you. This will be a go to in my house. It only took about 10 minutes to prepare. Everyone enjoyed it especially my 13 year old son.

      ReplyDelete
    170. I will definitely say to be wary of how much sodium is in fish sauce but heck yeah fish sauce is awesome for Viet food and for a lot of Asian recipes! =)

      ReplyDelete
    171. I LOVE LOVE LOVE cilantro!! I just wish I could keep it from wilting before I get to use it all.

      Roland make a Lite Coconut Milk. I don't remember where I purchased it.

      I found Fish Sauce at Uncle Giuseppes - it's an Italian grocery store, I'm not sure if they are outside of Long Island but if you have one look!

    172. Just tried this recipe tonight! It's great, quick, easy and nutritious. My hubby added some yellow and red peppers too. Yum!

    174. I made this on the weekend and LOVED it! I even froze some and defrosted it last night and it was still great!

      ReplyDelete
    175. holy moly this is DELICIOUS! I substituted 1# of chicken for 1# of shrimp (wasn't in a shrimpy mood) and it is 800x better than any of the Thai delivery places in my Chicago neighborhood...and low cal to boot! Started off dinner with a little boiled edamame and finished it off with this. One of my top 5 Skinny Taste recipes so far!!

    176. Just made this nummy dish, My celiac 13 year old son loved it,as did my hubby. We added spinach and sriracha.Gave it a a good kick of flavor.
      We made the pork chops and apple sauce last night very numsy as well. Thank you so much for sharing..

      ReplyDelete
    177. can you add chicken to this recipe too??? one of my girls doesn't like shrimp...i was thinking of adding diced chicken to it too...it should be okay right?!

      ReplyDelete
    178. i added some cut up pieces of tenderloins...and it still tastes just as fabulous!!!

    179. This was sooo good! I loved it. Thanks for creating an easy yummy dish.

    180. This was awesome! My whole family loved it. Served it over brown rice. Thanks for a delicious and healthy recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    181. First time ever trying a Thai type dish and it was a hit with my husband who claims he doesn't like Thai food! Served over brown rice. Going to try it with boneless/skinless chicken breast next time which I imagine will be just as yummy. This would probably be great over rice noodles as well, hmmmm... I know what I'm making for dinner tomorrow night...

      ReplyDelete
    182. I made this the other night for me and my husband with jumbo prawns and 1 inch chunks of chicken breast and also added half a green bell pepper. I served it over rice and sprinkled seasame seeds on top. OMG!! This was an amazing dish!! Doesnt even tast low-cal! My husband ate like 3 servings and requested it for dinner the next night, so I made it again! So delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    183. This is my new favorite recipe. I doubled the recipe and added a few extra teaspoons of curry paste. It was delicious! Thanks Gina!

      Like everyone before me....this recipe was GREAT!!! I tried it through the WW handout and it was lacking in taste, the fish sauce made a difference. I also used yellow curry so I can't wait to see what it will taste like with red curry. I served it over your cilantro lime rice and I wanted to lick the bowl. Thanks a lot!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    185. This receipe was absolutely fantastic! Not only was it quick & easy it was DELICIOUS! My dad who does not like curry, AT ALL, wanted more. So far my absolute favorite receipe on the website thus far. Thank you Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    186. In the past month, I've made this probably five times using cubed chicken breast because my husband doesn't like shrimp.

      This is officially my favorite recipe ever.

      We also have had trouble consistently finding light coconut milk. What is the difference in point value? Anyway, I usually just use 2/3 coconut milk and 1/3 water. I've also been subbing leeks for the scallion - both ways are amazing! Our local Asian market was out of the Thai Kitchen curry, so we're using a version that has shrimp and is REALLY hot. And wonderful.

      Trader Joe's has this amazing Brown Rice Medley; long grain brown rice with Daikon radish seeds and black barley. I cook it with chicken broth, and the combination is divine.

      This comes together so quickly, and is so flexible and forgiving... My only problem with it is that I have trouble not eating it all.

      It also reheats spectacularly for lunch. I love tormenting my coworkers with it. :)

    187. HELLO!

      I WANTED YOU TO KNOW I MADE THIS RIGHT NOW AND IT WAS FABULOUS! I ADDED SOME RED CHILI PEPPER FLAKES FOR AN ADDITIONAL KICK. I ALSO PUT FRESH SPINACH ON THE BOTTOM OF BOWL AND THEN PUT 1/2 A CUP OF HOT RICE OVER IT SO IT WOULD STEAL IT ON ITS OWN...THEN I PUT THE SHRIMP ASND CILANTRO AND GREEN ONIONS. SO FABULOUS! THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO COME UP WITH THIS GREAT WEBSITE. SINCE I FOUND IT I HAVE BEEN REFERRING PEOPLE TO IT LIKE CRAZY!
