This recipe hit the jackpot on every level for me! Thai-inspired (obsessed with those flavors), quick (less than 25 minutes…heck yeah!), healthy and beyond delicious. And when I say “beyond delicious”, I mean that I had to stick the leftovers in the fridge and physically LEAVE THE HOUSE so I didn’t eat it all. That’s the downside of making and photographing recipes in the middle of the day when my family isn’t there. No one to share the winner’s spoils! One of my tricks for putting together quick meals with tons of flavor is keeping a few flavor-packed ingredients on hand. Thai red curry paste and coconut milk are two of my go-to secret ingredients for quick stir-fries, soups and quick curries. They add so much flavor with so little effort that I almost feel guilty for taking credit for the meal. Almost. When my family says, “You sit down and relax; we’ve got clean-up”, all guilt ebbs away. I mean, who am I to turn down such a display of gratitude? That would be rude. This Thai shrimp stir fry comes together in two parts. First, searing the shrimp and stir frying the zucchini. Second, cooking the simple sauce. The total in-skillet cooking time? Eight minutes. Be sure to give the sauce a good whisk while it’s cooking so that the red curry paste completely dissolves into the coconut milk and chicken broth mixture. Serve the stir fry over brown rice or quinoa, or over cauliflower rice for a low carb version. If you make this recipe, I’d love to see it on Instagram! Just use the hashtag #COOKINCANUCK and I’ll be sure to find it. 4 1 1 review Thai Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe with Zucchini print shopping list Nutrition Facts Serving Size 1 cup Amount Per Serving As Served Calories 213kcal Calories from fat 121 % Daily Value Total Fat 13g 20% Saturated Fat 11g 55% Transfat 0g Cholesterol 143mg 48% Sodium 682mg 28% Carbohydrate 6g 2% Dietary Fiber 1g 4% Sugars 2g Protein 18g Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
