Cook the rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. While the rice is cooking, combine the water and curry paste in a medium bowl; add shrimp, tossing to coat. Place a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add the shrimp mixture, and sauté for 4 minutes. Add sliced asparagus and green onions; cover and cook for 3 minutes or until the asparagus is crisp-tender. Stir in salt and coconut milk. Cook for 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice.
This was very mild, as others have noted. However, in our opinion, this was a plus. We made the recipe exactly as described - we did use jasmine rice keeping with the Thai theme. WIll definitely make again.
Have made this recipe several times, first was June 2000. Always decrease the red curry paste. Sometimes saute sliced red pepper and/or sliced water chestnuts. Have substituted broccoli for asparagus. Usually thicken the sauce with a tsp cornstarch and a bit of water. Have served it over organic soba noodles and organic basmati rice. This is a really easy recipe.
