Thai Green Coconut Curry Shrimp with Basil

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Here is another Asian inspired dish that I really liked. Unfornunately, hubby doesn't like shrimp so I couldn't use him as a guinea pig to see if he liked it so you will just have to take my word for it :) There was a lot of coconut milk sauce in this dish so I mixed it in with the cauliflower rice. Cauliflower rice is just cooked cauliflower grated in the food processor. I used the shredding disk. You could also hand grate the cauliflower if you do not have a food processor. Enjoy!
