Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 cup shrimp in peanut sauce, 1 cup pasta, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro)

Ask your supermarket to have your shrimp peeled when you arrive. Many will devein it, too. If peanut butter in the sauce is new to you, get ready for a tasty surprise.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

Step 2

While pasta cooks, place broth and next 5 ingredients (broth through ginger) in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions, curry, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add shrimp; cook 6 minutes or until shrimp are done. Stir in peanut sauce; cook for 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Serve over pasta, and sprinkle with cilantro.

I added carrots and spinach to this to boost up the veggie content. Didn't think it was too hot (but we like spicy food). Might have liked it better with rice rather than noodles. And maybe using small shrimp instead of the 14-16 ct per 1 lb size would be nice (and I don't think about downsizing shrimp often)

This was good. I used a hot curry powder so it had a kick. I think a little splash of coconut milk would have been a nice addition to mellow the heat. I make a little extra sauce and then stirred in steamed carrots, snow peas and broccoli with the pasta.
