  • 340 g shrimp MSC certified, cold water, pre cooked, frozen
  • 1 tsp sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed (1 tsp)
  • 1 cup coconut cream thick
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup coriander fresh, washed, finely chopped
  • 1-2 tsp lime juice fresh
  • 1 red chili finely chopped, if desired


  • Thaw, drain and dry shrimp
  • Heat oil in pan over medium heat
  • Fry sesame seeds and garlic until lightly brown
  • Add coconut cream, turmeric, curry powder, salt and simmer for 2 mins
  • Add shrimp and warm through for 2 minutes
  • Garnish curry with cilantro, and chilli (if using)
  • Add lime juice and serve with rice


  • Choose good quality shrimp
  • Always use fresh garlic because ground will not give you fresh flavor
  • You can adjust the heat of the curry by adding more or less chili
  • If you don’t like coriander (cilantro) you can use fresh parsley
  • Leftover curry will keep well in the fridge for 2-3 days or can be frozen in suitable containers
