12 ounces chow mein noodles or spaghetti
1 1/2 tablespoons red curry paste
2 14-ounce cans coconut milk
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
4 ounces sugar snap peas, cut in half
4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves


Cook the noodles according to the package directions.

In a large saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine the curry paste, coconut milk, broth, ginger, and salt. Bring to a boil. Add the peas, mushrooms, and shrimp. Lower the heat and simmer until the shrimp are cooked through and the vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes. Divide the noodles and soup among individual bowls. Sprinkle with the cilantro.

Tip: Some like it hot. To reach your desired level of spiciness, add the red curry paste a little bit at a time. Look for the paste in the international or Asian section of the supermarket.
