Coconut Red Curry with Shrimp - Sweet with Spice

This is one of my favorite meals, ever. Like, of all time. If I am lucky enough to have a last meal, I think this would be it. The first bite you taste rich sweetness, then the heat hits you and it's glorious! 

There are many different ways to make a coconut red curry. I find this way easy enough for a weeknight meal, or as a hangover cure when you have tied one on. This can be a crowd pleaser that anyone can master. Cook this up for a bunch of friends and family and be like "Mmmmmm Hmmmm, yas girl, I got this!" 

You can top this on rice, quinoa or couscous like it did. The ONLY thing I would do differently next time is that I would use lemongrass to add that sour element. Next time for sure!

This recipe is from Thai Kitchen, but I added a few of my own alterations. If you try it out for yourself, please let me know how it went, what you did differently and shit, even if you hated it, leave a comment!

 The original recipe didn't call for it, but at the last minute I remembered I had some basil, so YAAASSSS! 

I used whole wheat couscous, but you can use whatever suits you.
