This Red Thai Curry with Jumbo Shrimp is super simple to make. You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand also. 

Red Thai Curry with Shrimp

As you may know I love Thai food and make it a lot in our home. Actually I make it every week, because I crave it that much. With any of my Thai recipes, you will learn that you really only need a few ingredients in your fridge and pantry to make any of them easily.

And that is because, I have been making homemade Thai recipes for years. And have learned all the tricks to making it quickly and healthily for just about anyone who loves it. 

Making homemade Thai curry at home is really easy once you have all the basic ingredients! 

I used broccoli and a green pepper in this dish, along with fresh bean sprouts. Traditionally broccoli is not added to Thai, however I love it.

TIP: Just make sure you are cooking it in at the very end. You only want to cook it to a crisp, not soggy and soft. Also you will want to cook the jumbo shrimp in the sauce as the shells of the shrimp help to add more depth of flavor to the dish.

However if your not into adding broccoli you can also use any of the vegetables I have listed below. Which all go very well in this thai dish too!

Then when it comes to eating the shrimp, simply suck off the juice and peel them with your hands.

Discarding the shells on top a paper napkin or dish.

And this whole dish can be brought together in less than 30 minutes! So Skip the takeout tonight and make this quick and easy dish right in the comfort of your own home. 

The reason it takes only 30 minutes to make is because we are using “pre-made” Thai Red Curry paste”.


Red Thai Curry has hints of spice, tang and sweet flavors. It really is something special and this recipe has all the same tastes that you would find at your local Thai restaurants too!

You may have thought that making Thai curry at home would be complicated, but I am here to tell you it is not. 

However I have found a healthy paste product that contains all those foreign ingredients that is out of this world amazing.

It will not only taste the exact same way as making it all from scratch, it will save you all the hassle of learning to do that and time.

What am I talking about? My favorite RED THAI CURRY PASTE! You can see that below!

red thai curry paste

Red Thai Curry is just a bit milder than Green thai Curry, however both taste similar. There are plenty different ways to make Thai curry and that is because you can add just about any type of vegetable or meat protein to your dishes.


  • Thai RED Curry consists of some kind of protein, some kind of vegetable, lime juice, fish sauce, sugar and Coconut milk and Red Curry Paste.
  • Traditionally that paste is made in a mortar and is comprised of shallots, garlic, green chilies, galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves among some other ingredients and spices. 


  • Fresh Green Chilli 
  • Lemongrass
  • Garlic
  • Shallots
  • Galangal
  • Cumin
  • Coriander seeds


  • 2 tbsp per 400 grams of Coconut Milk


  • YES!


  • Yes


  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Red, Green, Yellow or Orange peppers
  • Swiss chard 
  • Asparagus
  • Mushrooms


  • Chicken
  • Tofu


  • YES, Thai Curry is very healthy for you!

Some people like to use one can of coconut for their Thai curries. I will do that at times too, however for this recipe I used two cans as it really helps to cook those noodles. 


  • Jasmine Rice
  • Vermicelli Rice

If you love Thai food as much as me, then you will want to try my other thai dishes! All are AMAZING and really are some of the best ways to make Thai at home in a fraction of the time. 

Note: Want more heat, simply add in more Thai Green Curry Paste.
