Coconut Curry-ish Shrimp Rice

You guys, I made magic in the kitchen tonight.

And then, I cooked.


This afternoon at work, I realized I had to plan for a meat-free dinner tonight, since it’s Ash Wednesday. I knew I had a bag of shrimp in the freezer that I could use, but I knew I wanted to do something different than stir-fry or pasta, my two usual fallbacks. I remembered my coconut curry chicken and knew I wanted to do something like that. After spin class, I came home and got to work. I thawed the shrimp and then sauteed them with some coconut milk, kale, broccoli and carrots. I couldn’t find my curry paste, so I omitted it and just used some cayenne, cilantro and lime juice. I cooked up a 90-second rice packet and then threw it in with everything else.


Go me.
