Quick Coconut Curry Shrimp #Weekly Menu Plan

I just discovered the quickest, tastiest, and pretty darn healthy meal... I had to share it with you. I love Trader Joe products for convenience. This is a recipe that came out of a need to make a quick dinner for my family.

Pretty much all you have to do saute a vegetable, say something that is wilting in your fridge. Add a protein. I used some frozen shrimp I had in the freezer, but beans would make this a terrific vegetarian dinner.

Add a can of pre-made curry sauce, any brand will do, and a can of coconut milk... Voilà you have a tasty curry dish. Serve it on top of brown rice and now your are seriously eating well.

  1. It sounds deliciously easy Diane! I don't have premade curry, but I do have some different curry powders I think I'll try this with. Love having you over to Weekend Bites!

    1. Just mix the curry powders with the coconut milk it will taste great.
