How to make it

  • First, make sure you'll have some rice ready about the same time the shrimp are done.
  • Peel the shrimp and refrigerate.
  • Prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  • Seed the chillies if you don't like your curry very hot.
  • Peel the tough outer portion off the lemon grass.
  • Dice the ginger finely (or just slice it thinly against the grain).
  • For the lime - Use a large lime instead of a couple small ones.
  • That blends better.
  • You only really need about 80% of the peel from a large lime.
  • Now make a curry paste.
  • Put everything except the rice, coconut milk, and shrimp into a blender.
  • Add about 3/4 of a cup of coconut milk.
  • Blender on slow until all of the ingredients get chopped up.
  • Then run the blender on high for at least a minute.
  • Unless your blender is much better than mine it will take a while to break up the lime peel.
  • Now cook the shrimp in a little olive oil. Try not to over cook them. Let's say about 1-2 minutes per side on medium high. They'll brown better if you don't crowd the pan and don't play with them.
  • Take the cooked shrimp out and set them aside.
  • Turn the burner down to medium.
  • Add the curry paste from the blender to the pan and add the rest of the can of coconut milk.
  • Let this simmer for 1-2 minutes and then add the shrimp back in. Heat through.
  • Serve over the rice.

    Beautiful! Somebody bought me a jarred green curry paste but I always prefer making things fresh - from scratch. This looks awesome.

    Thanks for the tip - less seranos, more coconut milk. = ) Another trick I use is to throw a few spoonfulls of plain yogurt in just before serving to cut heat without compromising flavor. = )
