Shrimp curry bowls have long been a staple in my household, and with summer quickly approaching, it’s time to update them for the warm-weather season. Inspired by Rachel and Polly of Thriving Home, this Spicy Shrimp Coconut Curry bowl is easy to make, full of flavor, and just perfect for a summer dinner spent on the patio.
The recipe is featured in their cookbook, From Freezer To Table. Its pages are full of delicious homemade recipes that you can cook, freeze, and easily prepare in a snap. It’s jam-packed with simple recipes made from real ingredients. Case in point, these shrimp curry bowls. The recipe beautifully showcases the deliciousness of coconut, peppery and sweet ginger, and a healthy dose of heat thanks to the red curry paste and everyone’s favorite spicy condiment: sriracha.
From the TH gals: “When I want to surprise my husband with a date night dinner, this is my go-to one-dish wonder. Although there is a little kick to the sauce, my 7-year-old daughter even laps these noodles up and then requests them in her lunch the next day. But feel free to cut back on the sriracha or kick it up to your liking. Do not skip the fresh toppings at the end, though. The shredded cabbage, chopped peanuts, and squeeze of lime make these curry bowls to die for!”

Shrimp is oftentimes underrated. Perhaps it’s because shrimp can be tricky to cook, or maybe it’s the fact that some people just don’t like the taste and texture. While we may never know, I, for one, love to use shrimp in as many ways as I can.
These Shrimp Tacos meld sweet and spicy heat to perfection (thanks to the unexpected cucumber-pineapple combo infusing your tacos with refreshing flavor). This Garlic Shrimp Spaghetti ups the indulgence factor of your favorite summer produce (truly, it’s like eating a garden of earthly delights in your favorite form: comforting pasta). And these Shrimp Skewers—well, they’re like eating summer on a stick.
To me, shrimp is the perfect light substitute for other types of meat and can have more flavor than your typical mild white fish. Whether you’re team shrimp or not, this bowl is a great way to incorporate the shellfish into your diet and enjoy a simple yet flavorful summertime dinner. Read on for the recipe, and be sure to pick up the cookbook for delicious recipes you can make for gathering, cooking, and sharing!

What is the easiest way to devein shrimp?
Deveining shrimp can be intimidating and, frankly, kinda gross. But trust me: it’s really not as bad as it seems! Deveining shrimp just takes dedication and a little elbow grease. Once you’ve peeled that shell off, use a paring knife to make a light cut along the back of the shrimp and pull the vein out with the tip of your knife. Easy as that!
What are the best toppings for these shrimp curry bowls?
Roasted peanuts are great for adding a little nutty flavor and some major crunch. If you’re craving a taste of freshness and a tingle of zing, try incorporating herbs like cilantro, basil, and/or mint with a squeeze of lime. Add your choice of toppings to the mix and prepare to dig into the most addicting summer bowl you’ve ever made.
How can I kick up or downplay the spice?
There’s not much spice in these shrimp curry bowls, but if you want to layer on a little additional heat, you could sprinkle a pinch of red pepper flakes over the veggies as you sauté.
