This Easy Curry Shrimp dish is perfect served on its own, served over cauliflower rice or white rice, OR inspired by my recent vacation, served with fresh tortillas, toasted coconut, homemade mango jam, and pico de gallo. Because that flavor combination is just wow!
I am currently all about light, Spring-y, easy-to-throw-together meals. More specifically, 30-minutes or less, impress your guest kind of meals! Therefore, for this week’s Healthy Food Friday with American Express, let’s make the perfect Curry Shrimp dish. Why is it the perfect weeknight meal? Three main reasons: It’s healthy, made with simple minimal ingredients, and it’s E-A-S-Y!
So much delicious flavor goin’ on. Your family will think you spent hours over the stove!
