This Thai Red Curry Shrimp recipe was just the thing I needed to film this week. With Independence day just around the corner, I thought a spin on the traditional “Shrimp on the Barbee” was in order. Though I pan fry in this video recipe, there’s no reason why you couldn’t take these straight to the grill after the Prawns are marinated.
I lucked out at the super market when I found these whole jumbo shrimp with heads. That’s not normally how I buy them. But they give that Awe and Wow effect when they’re served this way. And just so you know, you don’t have to have whole jumbo’s . Just use what you’ve got and what’s available.

If you like Chinese Wontons, you’re going to love this Red Sauce Wontons recipe. It’s generally sweet and spicy but you can control exactly how much you want of each, easily. It’s true that this recipe was once on P.F. Chang’s menu. I’m not quite sure if it is anymore but I’ve broken down a restaurant size recipe and created this family size equivalent with medium heat. So feel free to adjust the Chili Oil, Chili Paste and sugar to your desired preference.

Pot Stickers are also know as Gyoza, which is seasoned and flavor ground pork that is steamed inside of a wonton wrapper that is folded into a crescent moon shape and pan fried. Shrimp Dumplings are very similar, only they are stuffed with seasoned and ground shrimp, instead, then steamed and pan fried. Oh, and did I mention the Dipping Sauce? Mmm, mm, mm!
