Easy Coconut Shrimp Stew By SweetNSpicyLiving

I love anything shrimp, buttered shrimp, steamed shrimp, grilled shrimp, shrimp curry, shrimp stew and anything shrimp I can think of. I know they are kind of messy to eat specially the shelled ones, but that’s where the fun is. Getting messy and getting my fingers dirty, it’s finger licking good. I was dreaming of shrimp the whole week, so I decided to finally take action and make that dream come true. I only cook and eat shrimp dishes during the weekend because well they’re messy, and I like eating the shelled ones. This Shrimp Tomato Stew in Coconut Sauce definitely ended my whole week of day dreaming about shrimp.

I love serving this with steamed rice, that’s really the best way to enjoy this shrimp and the creamy flavorful coconut sauce. If getting messy taste this good, I really wouldn’t mind having that every week. I love the freshness of the cilantro in this dish, and the sprinkle of fresh lime juice made even more enhances the taste and flavor. This is a simple recipe. Let’s get started!
