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.

  1. Can I sub oyster sauce for fish sauce??

  2. Absolutely delicious and so flavorful.

  3. Delicious!!!!
    Made it last night. It was wonderful. So quick and so easy. My husband has requested we add this to our regular rotation.
    I added a splash of lime juice at the end. Really finished it off perfectly. Going to add some sliced peppers next time

  4. I made this recipe  a few weeks ago for my son and daughter-in-law – it was such a hit!! We all loved it.  I added 1/2 julienned red bell pepper, julienned carrots and sliced mushrooms. Also a handful of bean sprouts,  This is definitely a keeper!!!

  5. Easy and tasty! Spiciness would depend on your curry. We added a little more heat at the end. I also added in a can of peas and carrots and some thinly sliced red pepper for more veggies.

  6. This was great! My husband loves Thai food, and this was a hit with him. He threatened to eat all the servings by himself! Based on other comments, I bulked this up with a sliced red bell pepper, sliced onion, and mushrooms. I also made 1.5x the sauce to account for the extra veggies, but I’m not sure I really needed it. Served over coconut jasmine rice. Thanks Gina!

  7. I loved this recipe! I used basil instead of cilantro b/c I had extra in my garden and it worked great as well. I thought this was flavorful and SO easy. Some people mentioned the lack of heat- I’m sure that depends on the curry paste you use but my husband and I have different spicy tastes so for us it is better to be less spicy since he doesn’t like it as much. If you want more spicy then you might want to add some chilis or find a paste with more heat. I also added some chopped red bell pepper for extra veggies I think next time maybe I’d add some green beans too.

  8. When I enter this into Carb Manager it’s saying a serving size is 237 calories (much different)  & 4.8 net carbs (same).  Strange. Anyone know why this is?

  9. I haven’t made this but would love to but am unable to find fish sauce in our local stores. Is there something I can use to substitute?

    • See https://thestonesoup.com/blog/fish-sauce-substitutes/.
      1. Soy Sauce 
      2. Soy sauce + rice wine vinegar
      3. Soy sauce + lime juice 
      4. Anchovies 

  10. This is delicious.  It’s very easy for a quick dinner.   My only problem had nothing to do with the recpie but with the brand of red curry paste I used. (Thai Kitchen) It had zero heat and very little flavor. I will make it again using a better brand.  Excellent neverthelessless.

  11. So easy, went together so fast, and delicious! We like spicy so next time will ramp it up.  We ate it on basmati rice and we (two of us) ate it ALL.  😋

  12. Pretty bland and disappointing 

  13. OMG Gina! Your recipes have never disappointed, but this is in the top 3! We didn’t change a single thing and it was perfect. Great coconut flavor with just a hint of spice from the curry paste. We were both commenting on how delicious it was the entire time we ate. We mixed it into brown rice pasta. Loved that the entire thing came together in like 15 mins. And it was enough for 4 servings!

  14. Served it with basmati rice and steamed bock choy! delicious and quick!

  15. Made this tonight as it was a recipe without brown sugar and I’m low carbing on keto diet. This recipe was easy and delicious. I just added some thin, lightly sauteed bell peppers slices for crunch. Served it with jasmine rice and cauliflower rice on the side. Added some heat with red chile pepper. Excellent taste and low in carbs. Will be a repeat recipe for me. The whole family loved it.

  16. Love this recipe! I felt like I was eating out at a Thai restaurant without the guilt. Now I can bring the restaurant home. The only thing I do suggest is if your cooking for a man to eat with you then double the recipe.

  17. We love this recipe! It’s so versatile. I tend to use more red curry than it calls for and also load it up with veggies like snap peas, mushrooms, red bell peppers and spinach. My 4YO loves it as well!

  18. Hey, what would you recommend to replace rice with on a LC diet?

  20. Made tonight and was delicious. Made cauliflower rice instead of rice and was a big hit with the whole family. 

  21. Just made this,very Nice! Added some crunchy peanut butter and a little brown sugar and it was so delish.thanks gina!

  22. Pingback: Champagne Chatting || Monthly Q + A Of My Most Frequently Asked Questions

  23. This was wonderful. We did have fish sauce so we used soy sauce. It was great served over quinoa. 

  24. Curious on what the actual serving size is? I know you say 1/4 of the recipe but about how much is that? My daughter and I try really hard to stick to serving sizes on WW.

  25. hi there, does this curry go well with any white fish? we dont eat shrimps but the rating in this recipe is so high that it seems like a yummy recipe!

  26. So deliciously flavourful! Yum, this is going to become a regular on my table. Fast and super easy.

  27. could I use frozen shrimp with this recipe?

  28. I made this last night and it seemed bland, perhaps I didn’t put enough curry paste – I’ve never cooked with that before so maybe my tablespoon  was lacking!  My husband loves it with some soy sauce.  Any thoughts, suggestions?

  29. This is delicious! I added some red bell pepper and white onion with the scallion whites. Tasty!!

  30. Would this freeze well?

  31. This looks great and I just love Shrimp! How can it be only 135 calories? I’d be happy if that’s true!

    Guess it’s more when you add the rice in.

  32. If I buy the frozen shrimp from Trader Joes, do I buy the cooked or uncooked? Then I'm assuming either way I need to thaw ahead of time?

    • I would buy the uncooked shrimp and definitely thaw before cooking. Thawing the shrimp in the fridge overnight would be best. 
      Hope this is helpful!

      • Another easy way to thaw shrimp quickly is place frozen shrimp in cold water in a bowl. Let stand for 15 min. Change the water and fill bowl with cold water again. Let stand another 15 min. They should be thawed by then. The cold water draws the ice out. While the shrimp is thawing in the water, prep the rest of your meal. No time is wasted this way.

  33. Is it spicy?

  34. I rarely cook seafood because my husband isn't a fan, but tonight he was working late. Let me just say, this recipe was fantastic! I was skeptical using the fish sauce, but all the flavors blended together perfectly! I served it over brown rice and alongside mixed Asian style veggies! I will definitely be making this again. Thanks Gina for yet again another deliciously, light dish!

    • I would love to make this with chicken. Will the instructions differ when cooking the chicken from that of shrimp?

  35. Home run!

  36. Made again today..switched up the protein by using chicken breast instead of shrimp. Everybody loved it!

  37. Delicious!! I made a small test batch for myself, guess what's on the menu for dinner next week.

  38. I love this recipe!!!

  39. Great recipe. Made it today, it was delicious.

  40. Absolutely great, only addition made was upscaling to 600g of prawns and a fresh Cayenne chilli pod

  41. OMG! I added chopped fresh broccoli and served over roasted spaghetti squash as part of my 21 Day Sugar Detox and it was FANTASTIC. Totally hit the spot and it was simple and fast to boot! Thanks a bunch 🙂

  42. This is probably one of the best recipes I've tried from you yet, so delicious and easy to make! Definitely my new favourite.

  43. What about be the sugar count on this recipe? thanks!

  44. I made this today using Culinary Twist Thai Maya Bay Sauce. It was fantastic! The sauce contains red curry ingredients and I really just used it with the coconut milk. Here's what I did: I sautéed 1 clove of garlic and the white part of the scallions then added the shrimp. Freshly ground some pepper on the shrimps. Let them cook on medium about 3-4 minutes. Then I added 4 oz Maya Bay sauce & 4 oz coconut milk. No extra salt was needed. I simmered this another 3 minutes. Topped it with plenty of chopped cilantro and green scallion bits. AMAZING. www.culinarytwist.com to buy online.

  45. Am I the only moron who can't figure out if you are supposed to used raw or cooked shrimp for this recipe? I see in the instructions to cook shrimp all the way through, so that leads me to believe that you are to use raw shrimp. Gina, can you please verify? thanks!

  46. Gina, I love your blog so much and I tell all my friends about it. I made this tonight and it was great! I don't like cilantro so I substituted parsley and it was a big hit! We served it over quinoa. Thanks again for great simple recipes!

  47. Gina,
    What kind of oil would you suggest using for this recipe?? LOVE your site and all of your recipes! Thanks!

  48. Gina, Any ideas to thicken the sauce up a bit? I was thinking maybe adding yogurt, but am open to any ideas you might have. We love this dish! Have had it twice in the past two weeks.

  49. Thank you Gina for this delicious recipe! Absolutely perfect, I have already made it several times exactly as you describe it.
    Alessandra, from Rome (Italy)

  50. I have prepared it last night. Delicious. It will become one of my favorites, also with guests. Thank you Gina for sharing this wonderful recipe! Sandy from Italy

  51. Made this tonight…AMAZING! Love Skinnytaste!

  52. This was amazing!

  53. OMG YUM!!!! just threw in a bunch of chopped veggies and served over brown rice…. I'm licking my plate right now!!! LOL

  54. Gina, I love your site! Thanks for going thru the trouble of calculating the points + values of every recipe… i just entered the ingredients in the WW site RECIPE BUILDER tool and it came out to 5pp?? I checked it over and over again and everything was exactly like your recipe… don't get me wrong, i am sooooo gonna make this bc it looks absolutely delish i was just curious… =)

  55. OMG, this was delicious! Thank you Gina!

    We had a little "healthy chinese night", I served this with:

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Bookmark-Managers/Transmute-Portable.shtml (out of the pineapple)

    https://www.skinnytaste.com/2011/08/sesame-encrusted-baked-chicken-tenders.html

    it was so tasty!

    A couple of tips:

    with the Sesame encrusted chicken tenders, I put the sesame seeds & panko in a plastic sandwich bag & then added the chicken tenders to coat which was a bit easier. I added a tsp of brown sugar to the thai coconut curry ( I saw this in a previous recipe I used to do on a regular basis of WW Thai chicken curry)

    Thank you! 🙂

  56. I made this about an hour ago and substituted the red curry for indian yellow curry (something I personally prefer) it was absolutely amazing!
    I also ran low on rice so I substituted it for orzo pasta and it was fan-ta-stic!

    Thanks for another great recipe!

    -Brittney

  57. I just made this for supper, another fabulous meal! I served it with garlic and chili jasmine rice ( we like the heat lol) .I have enough left over for lunch tomorrow..thanks so much for giving us low fat recipes that are packed with flavour.

  58. For those who trouble finding or smelling the fish sauce:

    Making this at a friend's house once, I forgot to bring my bottle of fish sauce. We substituted soy sauce, and it came out just fine. I prefer the fish sauce for the earthiness it provides, but the big deal here is a savory salty liquid – and the soy sauce worked.

  59. This was an amazing meal. My wife loves Thai food. I think it is just ok; but we both loved this easy recipe. I followed it as directed and we made it twice in the same week!

  60. Love your recipes! If I make this with chicken, do I cook the chicken first and then remove it? Or cook it like you did the shrimp?

  61. Added a squirt of lime when served, was awesome!

  62. I made this a few nights ago, and my husband and I really enjoyed it! It was super simple to put together, and tasted great. This is a perfect weeknight meal. I posted it over on my blog with a link to yours. Thanks for sharing this!

  63. this was absolutely fantastic. although very spicy. i think I may have used too much curry.

  64. Another delicious, easy recipe!!! Thank you!!!

  65. I made this again last night for dinner but instead of shrimp, I used 2 cans of chickpeas (rinsed and drained). With the chickpeas and served over basmati rice, it was a huge hit, not only to bf, but also to the three friends who stopped by!! Bf liked it BETTER than with the shrimp!

  66. This recipe was on Pinterest. I made it for lunch today, it was SO good! The only thing is the fish sauce is salty so there is no need for salt. I also added kaffir lime leaves and next time I'll add lemongrass! So tasty and easy to make, this is a keeper! Thank you!

  67. How spicy is this? My daughter loves coconut shrimp at panda express and I am trying to find a light version to cook at home but she does not like anything spicy, I cannot have spicy food either I am breastfeeding a baby with a sensitive tummy.

  68. I've never used fish sauce. Is there a brand I should look for?

  69. Just found this web site from a friend. They all look better to me than any I have looked at. My question is, I am diabetic and wondered if these are good recipes for diabetics. Tahnks for the answer. Fay

  70. I made this tonight and had to tell you my 5 and 7 year olds ate an entire serving themselves, they couldn't get enough! Thanks for continuing to make family friendly meals that everyone can enjoy!

  71. Hi, just wanted to let you know that I just made this for dinner and it was quick and really good! I had to omit the fish sauce because mine expired 05/10! Oops. It's great without it though and I made it exactly as you specified other than leaving the fish sauce out. Thank you and my house smells amazing too!

  72. This was absolutely delicious.

  73. It's so delicious! Yummy

  74. I made this last night with chicken. It was great! I sliced it thinly, and cooked the chicken for a few minutes before adding the curry paste because I was afraid of burning it with the longer cooking time the chicken requires, and I added a squirt of sriracha to up the spice. I made it with the coconut rice that you suggested as well – which I could NOT get enough of. I had an extra serving of rice in lieu of dessert- that's how much I loved it! Next time I'm definitely making it with shrimp – it must be amazing, I just had some extra chicken to use up this time around.

  75. Made this tonight for supper. Freaking delicious. Just a bit of heat, no biggy. Gonna use chicken sometime. Loved it!

  76. Made this tonight for supper, it was freaking delicious

    Thanks

  77. I made this for dinner tonight and it was fabulous! Amazingly easy too. I wanted a veggie included though so I added baby bok choy. I also doubled the amount of curry, garlic, coconut milk, and fish sauce so I would have enough sauce to cook the bok choy. After I cooked the shrimp, I removed with a slotted spoon and added 2 cups of baby bok choy to the sauce in the pan. I cooked for about 4 minutes in the simmering sauce and then added the shrimp back again before adding the remaining green onion and cilantro. The bok choy was a great addition and I felt good about getting in a veggie without having to cook another dish.

  78. WOW!!!! I just made this for the first time and I know why there are so many positive comments. This recipe was easy & tasty!!! I found everything I needed at my local Asian market. It was a hit with the entire family. I WILL definately be making this again!!! SOON. Thanks for sharing.

  79. Just wanted to let you know that I discovered this recipe through "Pinterest". To be honest, I would much rather try recipes that people have actually made and commented on, rather than reading … "I must try", or "looks yummy". So, in saying that, anyone who really would like to "try it" or says "must make" … then "DO IT" as I'm sure you won't regret it. This recipe is very easy and very enjoyable.

  80. I'm so excited to have found your blog through pinterest. Can't wait to try this recipe this week! I love Thai & seafood but my husband does NOT! He's away on business this week so I'm really looking forward to a meal catered for me! Hope my 2 yo will like it…. Now if only there was a special button to transfer all measurements to metric!

  81. I made this tonight and it was so easy and tasted just like the thai curry I love at restaurants!

  82. I made this recipe today and it is absolutely delicious. I feel like I just unlocked the key to Thai cooking. Thank you so much!

  83. What else can you use fish sauce for?

  84. Made this for dinner last night & it was amazing. Also per your suggestion I made some coconut jasmine rice & yum! I just recently found your website & so far I've made your low fat rice krispies, skinny salisbury steaks, chicken rollatini with spinach alla parmigiana & pumpkin swirl cheesecake yogurt cupcakes. ALL wonderful! Thank you so much for these healthy recipes. Tonight I'm gonna try your asian glazed drumsticks. I can't wait!

    Aloha from Hawaii… Missy

  85. This is an amazing recipe and soo filling! love your website, I just recently discovered it and last night made your pasta with asparagus and tonight this- both huge hits. thanks

  86. We love Thai food and this was a hit with my family. Thanks!

  87. http://importfood.com/satc2401.html

    Found Fish sauce here for $6.69

  88. LOVE your site Gina. I visit often:-) Tonight I made this dish and it was delish…except…it was so spicy HOT, whooo like fire! It's weird, I made another recipe with this same jar of Red curry paste and it was also so hot we could hardly eat it. I wonder if we got an especially hot jar. strange!

  89. So i made this tonight hoping for a ton of flavor in this dish, and it just missed the mark for me a little bit. I followed the recipe exactly, but it just didn't quite do it for me. I did, however, add some Siracha afterwards which seemed to bring the dish together a little better. I love spice, so the recipe as is was a bit bland for me.
    Great base recipe though–I can't wait to play around with this one a little more next time.

    Thanks as always!
    -Jessica

  90. I adore Thai food (and pretty much anything with coconut) and was so excited to see this recipe. I've made it twice, now…one with cilantro and once without (my mom doesn't like it). They were absolutely delicious and easy to make! Thank you for posting such great recipes!

  91. I just made this today. it was ready in a few minutes and was absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much for such a great website Gina!!

    I have another two recipes from you lined up for tomorrow and I can't wait.

    Thank you for taking the time of doing everything and counting the WW points every time!

    Deborah from London

  92. Think I will make this for lunch but also making it with chicken.

  93. I made this last night and it was absolutely delicious. Hard to believe it's only 3 points!

  94. Give given the 2 YEARS worth of enthusiastic comments I am very keen to try this. I have a problem with reflux though & need to steer clear of really hot (as in spicy) flavours though. Can you tell me if the red curry paste falls into that category? Or is it barely noticeable when combined with the other ingredients?

    Thanks!
    Wendy

    • This might be a little late, but the curry paste is not at all spicy. I used a heaping tablespoon and added about 1/2tsp of sriracha and you still couldn't call it hot (just really tasty). And I'm a pretty big wimp about spicy foods.

  95. I just made this recipe last night and it was one of the best skinny recipes I have ever had!! I can't wait to make it again.

  96. Made this last Friday and it was a HIT! I bought a pound of shrimp and fed 6! I didnt have any shrimp leftover but i did have sauce. I saved it and poured it over rice on MONDAY and ate it for lunch! FANTASTICO! I plan to make this all the time 🙂

  97. This was delish!!!! We have made it 3 times in the last 2 weeks!!

  98. It was a skinny taste night!! Made this tonight and it was a winner. I used Chicken instead of shrimp but hubby loved it!

    I added broccoli and grape tomatoes right into the sauce while it cooked! Amazing!

  99. AMAZING DISH. It's a really simple and fast meal. I've been looking for a curry recipe, and this hit the spot. It is not just a regular curry kind of dish, in that the coconut milk adds an extra taste. For me, I added more coconut milk than recommended. If you love sauce drizzling all over your rice, extra coconut milk is the way to go!

    GREAT MEAL! THANKS SKINNY TASTE!

  100. One of our favourites. Can't make enough of it. My husband gave it a 12 out of 10 last night. Since the calorie count is so low, we can enjoy 2 portions of it! We are maintaing our weight and have been loving your skinny taste recipes since January (and my friends are loving me for sharing them too)! Also love the Asian Turkey balls with lime dipping sauce, Tilapia Fish Tacos, Blueberry Banana oatmeal bars, chicken tikka masala, zucchini chocolate chip loaf….shall I go on! 🙂

  101. I can't believe I'm posting bc I'm not one to post but this recipe is fantastic! So easy but so good. I couldn't find light coconut milk (and went to 3 stores including Whole Foods) and just added a little water to regular coconut milk. I don't know the difference in points but this was excellent. I wish I had doubled the recipe and had more for leftovers tomorrow!

  102. Gina, I found your site in late March of this year, and I can't tell you how many of your recipes I've tried so far, but I CAN tell you I've loved them all!!! This recipe is the only one so far that I've made twice (although I have ingredients to make the stuffed pepper soup again this weekend) – what can I say about this recipe?!?!? It's soooooo dang good!!!! I love that it's a quick fix, it's great for a Saturday afternoon lunch when I don't feel like preparing anything. Yummo!!!

  103. I'm going to make it this week. I love your site. I have always struggled with sticking with diets because I crave all the old foods I used to love but cause weight gain. Now I can make healthy alternatives that curb my hunger.

  104. i made this for dinner last night…absolutely fabulous. all of your recipes that i've tried so far have been great! i love that they are low calorie but they actually taste good. every time i've had to diet in the past (read: every spring…) i've taken out low cal cook books from the library or found stuff online but i always found them bland and not filling/satisfying. this web site is a god send. i'm actually full, the recipes are delicious and super easy to make AND i'm losing weight. i can have my cake and eat it too…seriously, the "skinny chocolate cake"……also fantastic.

  105. As a new member to WW, I SO appreciate your website. It is my "go-to" for each dinner. I made this recipe and it was AMAZING. Loved it so much…we are having it again!!

  106. This was ah-mazing! Like other readers and their picky children, we loved it and I was appropriately surprised at my youngest child's appetite.

    Thank You!

  107. If I substitute it for chicken how many more calories would it be with each serving

  108. Got my boyfriend to make this meal and it was absolutely delicious!

  109. I added a red, green, yellow and orange pepper at the same stage as the shrimp. Helps make the complete meal with the veggies – but don't be too heavy handed with the red curry paste…we had to have a few beers to wash it down 🙂

  110. We love HOT but I can't believe no one has said how spicy this is with 1 TBLS of red curry paste. I was thinking I should have used a TSP instead. It was very good but my lips are on fire 🙂 I also added roasted red peppers for color.

  111. I made this with using "Thai red curry simmering sauce" It has all the ingredients already mixed for you, and just added some summer squash and zucchini. Sooooooooo Goood

  112. Dang, this is soooo good!!!!! I made it tonight again – I think I could eat this every day! Thanks, Gina!

  113. I recently found your website and love this recipe! Very authentic tasting and so simple to make!

  114. This was freakin' fantastic!!!! It's been a couple weeks since I made it, time to do it again!

  115. I just made this tonight for dinner and had to come on here immediately and say how delicious this was!!! Thanks so much for creating something so tasty!!! YUM!!!

  116. Delicious! I used chicken and added diced red bell peppers and 1 potato. So easy!

  117. Just made this for dinner! So DELICIOUS & easy!!!
    Thank you for making my life flavourful and healthy Gina!!!! I seriously tell everyone I know about this site!!

  118. This is the first recipe that I tried for your site and it was AMAZING! I didn't love the rice with it but I'll try it with noodles or veggies next time. Thank you!

  119. Made this this evening and everyone ate like it was their last meal. lol Needless to say there were no leftovers…
    Thanks again, Gina. Another hit. 🙂

  120. Just made this meal in New Zealand so had to change the measurements, but turned out amazing!

  121. this was amazing.. I made this tonight for a quick easy meal… but when I plugged all the info into the recipe builder (the WW leader today recommended I do this so I can save things as favorites, and she said this way I know exactly the points from the ingredients I am using) it came up as 4Points for the 4oz.

    love the light coconut milk from goya and I avoided adding salt since the fish salt is very salty and I usually don't cook with it, just add it at end if needed.

    oh and thanks to you.. in 2 weeks I've already lost 5.4 lbs! I thank you with every bite!

  122. This recipe was phenomenal! I wanted a quick yet great tasting Thai curry and I wasn't even looking for something healthy. Thanks to google, I stumbled on your website and made a very satisfying and healthy curry.

    I only made slight changes – my husband is a big eater (blessed with very high metabolism) so I added mixed chinese vegetables to make it a little more substantial for him. Also, my spicy tolerance is low so I ended up adding more of the light coconut milk to set the fire out in my mouth! My husband still got his spiciness and I got the sweetness – it was a perfect balance!

    I'll definitely make this again, and again, and again…. and I can't wait to try more recipes from your site!

  123. Wonderful!

  124. Fabulous and so low in WW points! I felt like it was an indulgence instead of "light" meal. Nicely done. I served with brown rice and sautéed zucchini.

  125. This recipe looks fantastic! Curry usually seems like it should be difficult to make at home… but your directions make it seem possible! Thanks for sharing.

  126. OH and one more thing, when you say "oil" as an ingredient, what kind do you mean? Olive oil or something else? Sorry, I am new to cooking . . .

  127. Hi Gina,

    Quick question: I made this dish and it was wonderful, however, I love the sweetness of some Thai dishes, which this one did not seem to have a lot of (though maybe it was the chef and not the recipe). How can I bring out the sweetness of the coconut milk a little more? Do you suggest adding more milk, less fish sauce, or something else?

  128. Gina, this is one of THE BEST recipes and is so accommodating to anything you might want to throw in. 1st time I made it, I followed the recipe. 2nd time, I used chicken breasts & threw in some sliced mushrooms to bulk up the fiber & veges, always over brown rice. SOOOO good!!! Keep those recipes comin' & I'll keep trying them! Oh.. and I really appreciate the WW points. Saves me a ton of time figuring it out on my own.

  129. Hi! I just stumbled across your site and have been loving your recipes so far! I don't have scallions, would spinach work or can I just leave out the scallions?

    Thanks!

  130. I made this tonight for dinner, my first Thai dish. I used scallops and shrimp since I didn't have enough of either one and even had a little "oopsie" with the coconut milk, but it is delicious and I'm so impressed with myself! Thank you for the recipe, I have a bunch of your recipes pinned to try soon!

  131. Oh sweet baby Jesus this was GREAT!! I just discovered this site last night and I am HOOKED!! I made simple coconut rice with this and also the roasted green beans with Parmesan. DELISH!!! I stirred in some fresh spinach to this as was suggested by another reviewer just to add some color. WOW! I added more curry paste..and then had to add more coconut milk to cut the heat LOL

  132. OMG!!! It was sssssooooo DELICIOUS!!! This is the first recipe I'm trying on your site… but won't be the last… Yummy! Thanks you so much 🙂

  133. I found this recipe on Pinterest over the weekend and made it for dinner last night. It was VERY good. The best part is my 12 year-old and 4 year-old boys loved it so much they want me to make it again tonight! Never have they requested a repeat of anything I've made. Thanks so much!!

  134. and here i was googling what's "cilantro" and "scallion"…. us aussies use different words for htem… lol

    looks delicious!

  135. This was fantastic!! Winner!!

  136. Thought I'd let everyone know:

    I made this at a friend's house the other day and forgot to bring my fish sauce. Soy sauce was substituted instead with the thought that it was savory/salty – still prefer the fish sauce for its more complex flavors, but it worked really well.

  137. SO yummy!! I am "off" the WW as of now but ALWAYS use your recipes to keep things healthy and delish! We loved this recipe, I did find I wanted a little extra acid and (if the kids hadn't been eating with us) a little extra heat. Next time we'll use some chili oil with the chives and curry and maybe splash some fresh lime juice at the end just before serving. A Wonderful dish!! Thank you so much!!

  138. I made this – and it was delicious. However, I was trying to calculate out the recipe on a phone app, and your calculations seem to be off, considerably. I checked it on another website and got the same results.

  139. This dish was delicious! My boyfriend and I liked it so much, we immediately made a second batch to take for lunch! Wonderful website Gina, thank you!!

  140. Tara, I'm sure it's great with chicken!

    Chunky monkey, glad you liked it!

  141. 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!

    SIGNED A CHUNKY MONKEY CHICK DOWNSIZING !

  142. 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. 🙂

  143. 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!

  144. 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!!!!

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

  146. 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!

  147. 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…

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

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

  150. Sure why not!

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

  152. 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?!

  153. 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..

  154. 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!!

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

  156. I made this last night the family loved it!!
    Ann Marie

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

  158. 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!

  159. 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! =)

  160. 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.

  161. 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.

  162. 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.

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

  164. 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!

  165. 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!

  166. 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!

  167. 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.

  168. 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….

  169. This was so easy. It was yummy and light!

  170. 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!

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

  172. 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?

  173. 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!

  174. Love pinterest! So glad you enjoyed it!

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

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

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

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

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

  180. Where do I get fish sauce???

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

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

  183. 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! 🙂

  184. 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"

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

  186. 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"!

  187. 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!!

  188. 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.

  189. 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.

  190. 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!

  191. 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!

  192. 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. 🙂

  193. Good for you!!! 🙂

  194. 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!

  195. You would still use it.

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

  197. Basil would be good instead.

  198. 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?

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

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

  201. 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. 🙂

  202. My pleasure : )

  203. 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!

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

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

  206. 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.

  207. You can post pictures on my Facebook fan page!

  208. 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.

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

  210. 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

  211. 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.

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

  213. 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.

  214. 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 🙂

  215. 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!

  216. Love sriracha Jay!

  217. 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.

  218. Thanks for commenting… Twice!!

  219. 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!

  220. 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!

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

  222. 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!

  223. Roxann, isn't it!!

  224. 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!

  225. Sure, why not : )

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

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

  228. Made this last night and it was wonderful!

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

  230. 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.

  231. 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.

  232. There's a search at the top right column.

  233. 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?

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

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

  236. Stalk all you want!!

  237. 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!

  238. 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!

  239. 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!

  240. My husband and I LOVED this! Thank you! 🙂

  241. One of my husband's favorite's!

  242. 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!

  243. Frozen shrimp works! But you must defrost them.

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

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

  246. 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!

  247. 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.

  248. 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!

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

  250. 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!

  251. 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.

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

  253. I agree Jan!

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

  254. 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?

  255. 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!

  256. 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!

  257. 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!

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

  259. 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.

  260. 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!

  261. 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

  262. 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!!

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

  264. 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?

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

  266. 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.

  267. babe… Its time to make this one again
    😛

  268. Oh….my…..

    I think I've found my home……..

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

  269. 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!!

  270. 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.

  271. 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!

  272. 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

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

  274. 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?

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

  276. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe!!! I love how quick it is to make, how it calls for only a few ingredients, and how it is full of flavor. Thank you!!!

  277. This meal is amazing! I couldn't believe how great it tasted! We were sad when the meal was over. 🙂 Thank you for another wonderful recipe!

  278. What a winner recipe! I had a little dinner party this weekend, this was my starter, it went down an absolute hit! 🙂

    check it out!

    http://big-fat-secrets.blogspot.com/2010/08/hostess-with-most-es.html

    thank you!!!!

  279. 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!

  280. 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!!

  281. I am notorious for changing recipes myself!!

  282. 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.

  283. 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!!!

  284. 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.

  285. 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!

  286. 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.

  287. 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?

  288. Your kids are braver than mine! 🙂

  289. 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.

  290. @teresa- that really is the perfect ending!!

  291. 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.

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

  293. so yummy! my husband said to keep making it.

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

  295. Apologies, I did'nt read the end of the recipe until now about the points in the rice. 🙂

  296. 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.

  297. @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.

  298. 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

  299. 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.

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

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

  302. 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!

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

  304. 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!

  305. 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!

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

  307. 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!

  308. 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!!!! 🙂

  309. 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.

  310. 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! 🙂

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

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

  313. 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!

  314. Welcome 🙂

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

  316. @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.

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

  318. WOW ~ I really NEED to try this – FANTASTIC recipe, Gina!

  319. 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!

    • I know this response is over 2 years old now, but I used the leftover the following day for curry chicken! MMMM!!

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

  321. @saltsea- I like the addition of snap peas!

    @mremmers Glad you liked it!

  322. I made this tonight for dinner, exactly as posted, and it was delicious. Simply wonderful – a quick, flavorful and healthy recipe! Thanks.

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

  324. 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 🙂

  325. Your picture is perfect! It looks delicious:) Stop over I am hosting an Anniversary Giveaway:)

  326. Yum that looks delicious!!!

  327. I'm glad you all share my love for variety and ethnic dishes! Enjoy!

  328. Looks so good! Love this dish

  329. This looks so yummy! I'm a total lover of shrimp and I need to try this out!

  330. Mmmm this looks delicious! I love all of your recipes Gina! I just made the shrimp with coconut milk, tomatoes and cilantro last night. It was so easy and delicious! I will be making this next!

  332. Chicken's great too!

  333. 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.

  334. mmmm Thai food! My favorite…

  335. 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.

  336. This is going on my menu next week!

  337. ohhh this looks like a winner! 🙂 YUM!

  338. This is one of my favorites… loved it babe

    Gina's Hubby.
