Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp Noodles Recipe - The Mindful Hapa (5)

I’ve made this Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp Noodles Recipe three times in the past 10 days, which I’m pretty sure makes this recipe a new favorite over here!

Juicy shrimp get sautéed with ginger, shallot, and jalapeno. Next, the coconut curry sauce is made by simmering together with the remaining aromatics, plus coconut sugar, coconut aminos, and lime juice.

Lastly, you stir in your favorite cooked pad thai noodles, crunchy snap peas, and fresh cilantro for the perfect flavorful, quick, and easy dinner!

  1. Cook your shrimp – with the ginger, jalapeno, and shallot. Set aside shrimp (leaving aromatics in the pan).

Favorite Products

Pad Thai Noodles – I tried Lotus Foods pad thai noodles for the first time and they were delicious!

Curry Paste – my favorite brand is Mae Ploy which I get on Amazon. I usually buy their 3 pack which comes with Red, Green, and Panang curry paste so I can have some variety.

Coconut Milk – I typically try and look for coconut milk that is made without guar gum. I love the Trader Joe’s brand because the ingredient list is just coconut milk + water and it’s not too expensive.

Easy Substitutions to make

This recipe is super easy to modify based on whatever you have in your pantry. You can sub onion for shallot, leave out the ginger if you don’t have, sub a different vegetable for the snap peas, etc. And if you do have any questions on recommendations/suggestions, don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments and I’m happy to provide suggestions 🙂

    So very good! I only had Japanese curry so it was a bit mild. I didnt have snap peas either but added bean mung sprouts that added some crunch. And chopped peanuts with the cilantro. OMG…Yummy! Paired well with Gin & Tonic;)
