  • About

Shrimp has a delicate flavor that should not be masked. A quick glance at the ingredients here might make you wonder if the chiles and garlic are overpowering. However, a mouthful of this curry will squelch that initial doubt. The acidic tamarind lowers the chiles’ sharpness while the coconut naturally sweetens the base, to let you savor each plump, juicy, subtle, rich-tasting shrimp.
