Curry Shrimp With Vegetable Noodles

I saw this recipe in a Sur La Table catalog and it looked interesting. It's  an excuse to use my  Paderno spiralizer again. It does a great job of making vegetable noodles.
This is a little spicy, however not too hot.  I would  add more red paste curry next time. My camera's battery died, so I had to take a few pictures with my  cell phone.

Curry Shrimp with Vegetable Noodles

Serves: Yields 4 servings
Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium shallot, peeled and minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into ½-inch dice
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 tablespoons Panang red curry paste
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Juice of one lime, about 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 pound medium shrimp; peeled and deveined
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 yellow squash, spiralized
  • 2 zucchini squash, spiralized
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • Small bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 6 large basil leaves, chopped
  • Zest of one lime, about 1 tablespoon

 Instructions:

Place a large saucepan, on the stove over a medium heat and add the vegetable oil. Saut é the shallots and red pepper for 3 minutes to soften the shallots. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add curry paste, honey, soy sauce, lime juice, and coconut milk and cook another minute. Season shrimp with salt and pepper and add to the broth. Simmer 3 minutes or until cooked through. Add spiralized yellow squash and zucchini and toss with the curry sauce. Cover and let simmer for 5 minutes to warm through. Remove lid and add scallions, cilantro, basil and lime zest. Toss everything together. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
The next time I make this, I will change it up a bit.  I will stir fry the vegetables and make the sauce in a different pan and then mix everything together. I would also make some rice.  you need something to sop up the rich curry sauce. You can purchase the spiralizer at Amazon or Sonoma Williams. For fun, I made this little fishes under the sea marshmallow pops. Great for your kids or grand kids to create these cute little babies.
I had to share this morning early, one of our Schnauzers got skunked!  Ick! Off to the shower with peroxide, liquid soap and baking soda. They never learn....LOL
Have a wonderful week.
