Shrimp Coconut Curry Recipe!!

Shrimp probably is my favorite in fish. I love it in salads and wraps. Most of the time, I boil shrimp and simply mix it with other greens and make a salad. But today I wanted to try something different and therefore decided to make Shrimp curry. As I was playing with different spices, I ended up using coconut milk and the combination of everything came out to be Shrimp Coconut Curry. I was extremely pleased by the results since it was my first time making curry of shrimp and I had never even tried something like this before. Posting recipes has definitely enhanced my cooking skills day by day. Here you go everyone, follow the steps below for easy yet delicious Shrimp Coconut Curry :) Also, if you want to try other fish dishes then Click Here (Mustard Tilapia/Tori Macha) and Click Here for Nepali Style Fish Roast Recipe.
