Thai Shrimp Curry with Date & Coconut

This Thai shrimp curry recipe can be whipped up very easily and is a refreshing meal for a warm summer night. Coconut milk and DateME date paste give it a creamy texture and added flavor. The abundance of fresh veggies keep it light! If on a gluten free diet, be careful of the soy sauce you use. We suggest San-J brand or one of Kikkoman’s gluten free versions.

  7. Transfer pan to oven for about 5 minutes, or until the shrimp are cooked through. Remove from the oven and stir in the lime juice.

Garnish with chopped cilantro and lime slices. Serve alongside fluffy jasmine rice. If you like it spicy, top with some red pepper flakes and Sriracha sauce!
