  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 1- Inch Piece Ginger, grated and minced
  • 2 Stalks Lemongrass, minced (sub 2 tbsp. lemongrass paste)
  • 1 Scallion, diced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, cut into equal sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp. Red Curry Paste
  • 1 can Unsweetened Coconut Milk, 13.5 oz. can
  • 1 Lime, the juice and zest
  • 1 cup of Water
  • 8 oz Shrimp, wild caught, not farm raised
  • ¼ cup Cilantro, diced
  • NOTE: You can use chicken or beef in place of the shrimp.


  • Wash, dry and prep the produce.
  • In a medium pot, heat 2 tablespoons of oil on medium-high until hot.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, minced lemongrass, scallion and bell pepper.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened.
  • Next, add as much of the red curry paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until fragrant. (It smells amazing!)
  • After a few minutes, add the coconut milk, lime zest, and 1 cup of water to the pot.
  • Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until thoroughly combined.
  • You’re aiming for a slow simmer as boiling the soup, may make the coconut milk separate.
  • Add the shrimp, cilantro and the juice from your zested lime.
  • Cook until the shrimp are pink and cooked through. Salt and pepper to taste (optional). Garnish with some scallions and the remaining cilantro and lime wedges. Enjoy!
