What a busy weekend. Saturday morning my 7 year old ran a 1 mile healthy kids race. They have a series of these over the race season that kids can do for free. This is the 3rd one he has done, and we actually “trained” for it. I took him out last week and ran 1 mile trying to see if he could get faster each day. He got down to 9:30 on the 3rd time. He may or may not have ended up with 8:55 for the race (depending on how accurate our timing was). But he did awesome!
So after such a busy weekend, this shrimp is a great meal. I am not a big seafood fan, but I do like shrimp. I have kind of been on a shrimp kick lately. I made Crispy Herbed Shrimp, this, and then I have it for our meal plan again this week. I am not sure what is going on, but my husband sure is happy!
I absolutely loved this shrimp. It wasn’t my husbands favorite, but he did eat quite a bit of it. It turns out that anything in a coconut broth, he isn’t a big fan of. He did love the kick from the curry paste though. It was just enough to give it a little kick, but not enough that you needed a drink after every bite. I guess I will have to try another spicy shrimp curry that isn’t made with coconut milk to see how that goes over.
Plump shrimp in a sweet coconut curry sauce, that has just a little bit of a kick. Quick and easy dinner for the whole family.
