Asian Cravings: Green Shrimp Curry with Noodles

In doubt what to make tonight?? Done with the usual Monday Meatballs...??
Why keep special recipes for the weekends only?!
Surprise your husband, wife, kids or housemates with this exotic asian Green Shrimp Curry with Noodles coming out of March's dutch Delicious issue.

Ingredients: for 3 servings

  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil 
  • one shallot
  • 1cm ginger grated
  • one garlic chopped up
  • one red pepperoni chopped without the seeds
  • 1 teaspoon kurkuma
  • 2 tablespoons green curry paste (to taste)
  • salt 
  • one can of coconut milk
  • 250 ml chicken broth
  • 450 gr of big shrimps (peeled)
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 250 gr of asian wok vegetables 
  • 100gr snow peas
  • 250 gr of noodles (I used egg noodles)
How to make it:
Bring a large pan of water to a boil with a fist of salt.
Heat up the sesame oil in a wok - or a deep frying pan - until well heated.
Add the shallot, garlic, ginger, pepperoni and fry until they release their perfumes. Add the kurkuma, green curry paste and salt to taste. Stir for a minute.
Add the can of coconut milk and the chicken broth. Stir and heat until the sauce is boiling.
Add the shrimps and bring down the heat in order for the shrimps to boil in a simmering sauce.
Heat up the second spoon of oil in another pan and fry the vegetables shortly in order for them to remain firm and crispy.
Once you get to this step, your water must be boiling. Cook the noodles in 3-4 minutes. Rinse them once their done.
Serve the noodles with the shrimp curry - and the vegetables aside.
