Shrimp in Coconut Sauce

I got this recipe from Cooking Light many years ago.  I like to serve red beans and coconut rice with these shrimp but plain rice or noodles would be good too.

I usually serve some simple green vegetable like steamed snow peas with this. If your rice cooker has a steamer basket you can steam a vegetable while the rice is cooking.

Shrimp in Coconut Sauce

  • For the sauce
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili garlic paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • For the shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons diced green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (or less)

Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.

In a large skillet, heat the oil, then add the shrimp and cook two minutes, stirring.

Add the green onion and red pepper flakes and cook another minute, stirring.

Add the coconut milk mixture and bring to a boil, then reduce heat so the sauce is just at a simmer, stirring. Cook another minute, until the shrimp is pink and cooked through.

Serve over rice or noodles.
