4-6 tablespoons Red Thai Curry Paste

6 kefir lime leaves (if you don’t have use the zest of one lime)

1 pound peeled and deveined 16-20 shrimp

2 teaspoons fish sauce

½ tablespoons of palm sugar or brown sugar

1 red bell pepper julienned

½ teaspoon tamarind paste (or lime juice)

To a medium saucepan add three tablespoons of the hardened coconut cream to the saucepan and let melt over medium heat.

Stir in the curry paste and lime leaves and simmer till paste begins to brown.

Add the remaining coconut cream and simmer for 20 minutes.  The sauce will reduce slightly and thicken.
