Shrimp Coconut Curry, shrimp and baby bok choy coated in a luscious lime coconut curry sauce!
First of all, thanks go out to The Fresh Market for sponsoring this post! Everything pictured was purchased at one of their Jacksonville, FL stores after shopping their local store updates event!
With 100% certainty, I can say I love The Fresh Market AND this recipe for Shrimp Coconut Curry! I actually got this recipe off of The Fresh Market website. I really wanted to try out one of their recipes because they all just looked totally delicious and most of them are 30 minutes or less which is a huge plus.
So, I’m sure you’ve asked yourself what is this local store update event? Well, here in Jacksonville, FL the local stores have been having an event from August 16th, 2017 and it will continue through the weekend and end on the 20th.
They revamped four of their area stores here and they just really want everyone to come and check out the updates! I went to the Riverside location on the 16th and as soon as I walked in the doors I could tell there had been a change.
The store was brighter, it looked bigger and even more inviting than before. Which is crazy to me because I already loved it as it was!
They also have a lot more prepared items. This section was crazy huge! I know people have come to love their prepared meals and now you get even more of the good stuff!
One thing I really loved was this Little Big Meal station.
It is updated every Wednesday and this week its Fajitas! They have everything set up and proportioned so you can just grab and go. PLUS, this is a lovely sampling section so you can taste before you buy, how awesome is that?!
But, to me, the “wow” factor is the produce section. Lucky for me, I already had my shopping list in hand and knew exactly what I needed to pick up for my Shrimp Coconut Curry.
Look how gorgeous this baby bok choy display is! If I didn’t need it already I would have picked some up anyway, they were calling to me!
I picked up my other produce goodies like ginger, onion, and bean sprouts, then headed over to the seafood area.
I just can’t get over how fresh everything is. I know you know that smell in other grocery stores that just seems to linger over the seafood display… you won’t find that here!
Plus, the workers are so accommodating and nice, they really make you feel like you are the only one needing to be waited on.
Back home I went, I was so excited to cook up dinner with my super fresh ingredients!
Shrimp Coconut Curry
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 c. minced onion
- 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp. minced ginger
- 1 Tsp. crushed red pepper flakes or to taste
- 1 Tsp. curry powder or to taste
- 1 c. fresh or canned coconut milk
- 1 lime juiced
- 1 lb. large shrimp peeled and deveined
- 1 bunch baby bok choy sliced
- basil for garnish
- bean sprouts for garnish
- limes for garnish
- 1 c. basmati rice prepared according to package
- Place the oil in a large, deep skillet and turn the heat to medium. Add the onion, garlic, ginger, and chilies and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are tender and the mixture pasty. Stir in curry powder and coconut milk, and lime juice and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 5 to 8 minutes.
- While sauce simmers, season shrimp with salt and pepper. Add shrimp to sauce and simmer, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add bok choy for the final 2 minutes of cooking time until just barely tender. Add salt to taste and serve immediately with basmati rice and optional garnishes.
I know, this recipe might seem a little intimidating but it’s really not. Just get all your ingredients out and ready to go before hand!
This dish is so flavorful and bursting with that creamy coconut lime sauce!
And, those shrimp I got were so plump and juicy. The sauce coated them beautifully. That rice is a must to soak up all that lovely coconut curry sauce!
I really hope that if you are in the Jacksonville, FL area you will come and visit this weekend! The Fresh Market will have in-store sampling, not-to-miss cooking demonstrations, live entertainment, special deals, and free giveaways!
Along with the revamp, they really took the time to listen to their customers and wanted to give them what they wanted. Browse the dry goods section and you will see more recognizable brands we all love. Plus, they added a baby section and more everyday household items if you’re in a crunch!
Thanks so much for taking the time out to spend a few minutes with me today to learn about The Fresh Market and I hope you enjoy this yummy recipe!
