Coconut-Curry Shrimp over Rice

Coconut-Curry Shrimp over Rice

Shrimp needs just a short marinating time to absorb the flavors of the aromatic sauce, making this tasty entrée quick enough for a busy weeknight. Steaming cooks the shrimp gently, so there's less chance of overcooking. Regular coconut milk offers the best flavor for this dish; the taste of light coconut milk is too subtle.
