Thai Green Curry Shrimp Recipe

This recipe, inspired by authentic ingredients from a market in Thailand, features an intoxicating green curry paste,used in a hearty, spicy meal of green curry shrimp served over fragrant jasmine rice. There is no comparison between jarred green curry and the homemade version.

 

The shortcut is tempting, but the second your kitchen is filled with the aroma of green chilies, coriander, ginger and lime, the jarred stuff will be the furthest thing from your mind. Plus, curry paste keeps forever in the freezer and you can cut off chunks as you need it, whether it be for a full-fledged meal or just as a topper for some steamed rice. Almost all of the ingredients can be found at the Chelsea Market here in the city, but there is also ImportFood.com for hard-to-find items.
