For Shrimp Marinade

  • 1 lb extra-large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

For the sauce

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger minced
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 14.5 oz diced tomatoes
  • 13.5 oz coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp cilantro for garnish (or parsley)
  • cooked rice for serving


  • In a small bowl toss the shrimp with the marinade ingredients. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  • While the shrimp is marinating, heat the oil in a medium size skillet. To it add the onion, and cook for 2 or 3 minutes until the onion softens and becomes translucent. Stir in the garlic, ginger, pepper, salt, coriander, turmeric and curry powder. Cook for another minute.
  • Add the diced tomatoes with juices and all, the coconut milk, stir and bring to a boil. Cook for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Add the shrimp with the accumulated juices from the marinade and cook for another 2 minutes or until the shrimp is pink and cooked through.
  • Serve over hot rice and garnish with cilantro or parsley.



Nutritional information does not include rice.
Curry should be safely sealed in an airtight container and refrigerated for 3 days. If you want this curry to last, my advice is to freeze it where it will last for up to 3 months. Ensure that it is fully cooled before sealing and use a shallow container to ensure even freezing. Stir well while reheating.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
