Thai Shrimp Curry

We've been working on using our Asian ingredients this winter. As you may know, we make periodic runs up to Blois to an Asian grocer called Paris Store to stock up on noodles, spices, frozen shrimp, and other goodies from the Orient.

This past week we made a shrimp curry with bamboo shoots, straw mushrooms, and coconut milk. We prepared a red Thai curry paste to spice it up and served it with soy noodles. I can't tell you how good it was. There were no leftovers.

We just found out that there is another Paris Store in Tours, and that it may be larger than the one in Blois. We'll be checking it out later this year, for sure!

    evol, yeah, they're hard to beat!

    I chuckled at some of the comments.
    Every country in the world should be "the best country". Because I have lived in the US and France and have traveled extensively, I get tired when people make comparisons. The saying is so true "you are either part of the solution or part of the problem" and reading blogs sometimes I see a lot of "part of the problem".


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
