Thai Curry Noodle Soup with Garlic Shrimp

Adapted from a recipe by Heather Christo

Below serves 2

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Tiger Shrimp 10-12
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 tbsp red curry paste
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 C chicken broth
  • 1 1/2  C lite coconut milk
  • Fish sauce (dash)
  • Rice noodles (enough for 2!)
  • 6 white button mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper thinly sliced
  • Fresh cilantro
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced

 

  • Combine the ginger, curry paste & 1tbsp oil in a small bowl and mix well.
  • In a pot, heat the curry paste/ginger mix over medium heat, frying the paste gently for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth & lite coconut milk with the dash of fish sauce.
  • Add the mushrooms & red peppers, bring to the boil and reduce gently to simmer (for around 5 mins.)
  • While this is happening in a separate pan pour boiling water onto the dry noodles, let them soften, rinse well & set aside (portioned off into the 2 bowls.)
  • In a frying pan heat the garlic with the remaining 1tbsp oil over a medium heat, add the shrimp and cook till lightly pink, but not overcooked! (this can happen alongside the noodles)
  • Once cooked add the shrimp to the broth, remove from the heat and allow to stand for 1-2min.
  • Pour over the noodles in the bowl and garnish with the coriander & spring onion.

Prep & cooking time – less than 30 minutes total.
