Thai Coconut Shrimp with sweet peas


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

If you don’t eat shrimp, you can replace it with chicken fillets or fish


  1. 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.


    • 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Wow, this looks absolutely delicious!!!! I’ve never had Thai food, but I would definitely eat this! Thanks for sharing this amazingly yummy recipe lol

  4. This looks super yummy! I love both shrimps and thai food, but unfortunately my kids and husband aren’t huge shrimp fans. I think I’ll try your suggestion, and swap the shrimps for some chicken 🙂
