Curry Shrimp Bowl Brings on the Heat

ShrimpCurry3

Want to spice it up tonight?  Here’s a delicious and nutritious ways to do it. For super quick prep, purchase already peeled and deveined shrimp. To tame the spicy heat, add more water or a little coconut milk to the sauce. If you can’t find lime rice, make regular quick-cooking rice and add the juice and zest from one lime. The shrimp, curry and rice can all be made ahead, but stir in the coconut chips just before serving.
