Coconut Curry Shrimp

It was Saturday morning and I always wake up and watch the Food Network.  Claire Robinson of 5 Ingredient Fix was on and she made this amazing looking coconut curry shrimp.  All her recipes have 5 ingredients or less, besides salt and pepper.  It seemed so easy and fast that I actually went out and bought all the ingredients and invited a friend over for dinner that night.  I needed to have the meal right then and there, I couldn't even wait another day!!  That's how excited I was to make this dish.  It actually came out so delicious and literally took me about 20 minutes total to put it together and plate it!

Coconut Curry Shrimp
(serves 4 people)
1(14-ounce can) coconut milk, unsweetened
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper or cayenne pepper (optional)
the juice of 1/2 a lime
1 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped (optional)
In a large pot whisk together the coconut milk, lime juice, curry powder, salt, pepper, red pepper or cayenne and ginger. Slowly bring to a low boil over low heat. Simmer until slightly reduced and thickened, 5-7 minutes. Add the shrimp and simmer until the shrimp are fully cooked, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer the curry to a serving bowl and serve with lime wedges and a side of coconut rice or quinoa. Sprinkle with some fresh chopped cilantro, serve with a lime wedge and enjoy!
