Thai Red Curry Shrimp

It’s hard to believe how much flavor comes from so few ingredients in our Thai Red Curry Shrimp. But with shrimp, curry paste, and coconut milk topping the list, you’ll definitely become a believer. And the fact that this meal comes together in just half an hour means it won’t be necessary to call for Thai takeout tonight.
