Green Curry Shrimp
Bring 3 cups water to a boil in large saucepan; stir in rice, reduce heat to very low, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until tender.Advertisement
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add curry paste and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Whisk in coconut milk, chicken broth, fish sauce and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add green beans, red pepper and carrots. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp tender. Nestle shrimp into liquid and cook for about 3 minutes, turning shrimp in liquid, halfway through cooking time. Turn off heat and cover until ready to serve.
Serve with rice and wedges of lime. Garnish with basil, if desired.
