Thai Red Curry Shrimp – Spicy Prawns Recipe

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.

Also, if curry and/or spicy shrimp recipes are you’re thing, you might want to check out the Curry Chicken Salad and the Firecracker Shrimp recipes I’ve listed below!

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
