10 Ounces Shrimp
¾ Cup Jasmine Rice
2 Cloves Garlic
½ Pound Green Cabbage
1 Stalk Lemongrass
3 Tablespoons Roasted Peanuts
2 Tablespoons Yellow Curry Paste
1 (13.5) oz can Coconut Milk
Prepare the ingredients
Wash and dry the fresh produce.Peel and mince the garlic.Cut off and discard the ends of the lemongrass; peel away and discard the fibrous outer layers until you reach the pliable white core. Mince the core. In a bowl, combine the coconut milk powder and 1 cup of water; whisk to thoroughly combine. Using a peeler, remove the green rind of the lime, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter the lime.Cut out and discard the cabbage core; cut into ½-inch-thick pieces.Roughly chop the peanuts.
Cook the rice
In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt and 1 1/2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff the cooked rice with a fork. Set aside in a warm place.
Cook the aromatics
While the rice cooks, in a medium pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic and lemongrass; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant.
Add the curry paste
To the pot, add as much of the 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.
Add the coconut milk
Add the coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water to the pot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly reduced in volume. Add the cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly softened.
Finish & plate your dish
While the cabbage cooks, rinse the shrimp. Pat dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.Add the seasoned shrimp to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through.Turn off the heat and stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges. Season with salt and pepper to taste.Divide the finished curry and cooked rice between 2 bowls. Garnish with the peanuts. Serve with the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
