Today my daughter, Yanah, started volleyball practice which means my day has been shortened by 3 hours. Dinner must be quick, simple, and flavorful. I decided to make Thai coconut shrimp with sweet peas which I served with Jasmine rice, fried plantains, and avocado
Thai Coconut Shrimp With Sweet Peas
1 cup of frozen sweet peas
2 Tbs canola oil
¼ cup minced shallots (I used white onions)
2 Tbs minced ginger
1 Tbs minced garlic
2 Tbs granulated sugar
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
½ cup fish stock
¼ cup soy sauce
1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
½ cup minced scallions
In a pan, heat the oil, add shallots, ginger, garlic, and sweet peas. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add sugar, fish stock, soy sauce, and coconut milk and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add shrimp. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove lid, add scallions, chopped cilantro, and drizzle with lime juice
If you don’t eat shrimp, you can replace it with chicken fillets or fish
Yummy! I’d swap shrimp for chicken though. 🙂
I made it with chicken, it is as delicious as with Shrimp, Candice.
Oh I am always looking for shrimp recipes! My husband loves shrimp but I never know anyway to cook it.
You can try it and let me know Samantha.
This looks absolutely delicious! Would love to make this recipe soon!
It is, Ashley, and easily made.
I have never use coconut milk for cooking, food must taste really good with it! I love your side dishes! Big fan of avocado here 🙂
You can use the fish stock only if you don’t like coconut milk, Shirley.
This looks incredibly scrumptious. Hubby and I love shrimp and would love to try this soon.
Hope you like it, Vyom.
This looks super delicious and super simple too!! I can’t wait to try this. My son loves shrimps and prawns, he will be very happy to have rhianaftef a day at school.
Great, Cherie, and let me know if he likes it.
This sounds so good. I love quick and easy meals! I hope you enjoy your daughters volleyball, I can’t imagine having my evenings cut by three hours!
The first meet, I always stay with her, next Sunday, I will not. That’s why the quick and easy meal was the solution yesterday, Angela.
You literally had me at coconut and shrimp! I love Thai food, and this sounds amazing! I’m coming over to your house for dinner!
That will be great Lois, just come, the more, the merrier.
Shrimp is one of my most favorite foods and this recipe sounds perfect…healthy and tasty. Perfect for a cold Chicago night.
This winter is hard for everyone, although, we had a small break this weekend.
This looks delicious! We love eating shrimp, and I like how simple this recipe seems to be. And congrats to your daughter on starting volleyball!
Thank you, Stephanie.
Yum! I’m always looking for good ways to incorporate shrimp into my meals!
I am glad that you find a new way to cook shrimp, Arielle.
I actually have everything I need to make this! I was wondering what to fix for dinner. This looks light, easy, and delicious
Alicia, it can be made a very short time, a convenient recipe for a busy mother like me.
How amazing does this sound right now? I’m so hungry and I’m dying to make this for myself!
Hope you love it, April!
I might try this recipe with the chicken filets for my daughter. But I think I would much prefer shrimp for this recipe. This does look delicious.
It is as delicious with chicken as with shrimp, David.
Looks good and I always love quick meals!

My mom is from Thailand and I cannot get enough of her cooking. This looks so good and now I’m starving.
I love Thai food, you should get me some recipes from your mom, Candy!
This Thai Coconut Shrimp with sweet peas dish looks absolutely delicious. I really like the fried plantains on the side too.

It was yummy, Carriann!
Wow yummy it makes me feel hungry! Perfect serving for dinner I would love to try this at home 🙂
Give it a try, and let me know, Maysz!
This sounds like a delicious soup and very easy to make. I love shrimp and I had no idea that their flavour would go with peas actually. I would leave the cilantro out, as I am not a lover of this herb.
You can leave the cilantro out, Joanna, let me know what you would substitute it.
Yummmmm looks quite effortless for how delicious it is! I will be trying that for sure
So true, Katy!
Looks like a nice go-to to add into the meal rotation!
I agree, Megan!
I am just preparing dinner. Shame I do not have shrimps at home, this looks delicious. Need to go shopping, to get all the needed ingredients and try to make it tomorrow.
Try and let me know!
that looks really good. i’m sure my family would love it! i’ll have to save this and try it out.
Try and let me know, Katrina!
coconut shrimp is one of my favorite flavor combinations
Same for me, Thuy!
I would have to swap out the shrimp for chicken. Otherwise, this looks really good!
Go for it, Dominique!
