Coconut Mango Curry with Shrimp

by Meghann on March 22, 2012

So about that case of mangos


They’re going fast.

Derek ate three today on his own. Two in the morning and one right after dinner. I caught him over the sink sucking what he could off of the core. At least I know he likes them. ๐Ÿ™‚

(don’t forget to enter for a chance to win a case of your own!)

Tonight’s mango themed dinner was originally inspired by this recipe for Coconut Curried Pork. Only I ditched a few of the ingredients, added a few of my own, and swapped around this and that to make something almost unrecognizable from the original. The results were fabulous. Viva la mango!

Coconut Mango Curry with Shrimp

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 2 small red potatoes
  • 2 sweet peppers
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas
  • 1 mango
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons roasted red chili paste
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 lb of shrimp
  • brown rice


Start by chopping the onion, potatoes, peppers, and mango into bite sized pieces. Get the pan nice and hot, drizzle with the sesame oil, and add the onion and potatoes. Let the onion and potatoes cook for about 5 minutes, then add add the broccoli, snap peas, and mango.


Let the veggies cook for a few minutes, then pour the the coconut milk over top and mix in the red chili paste and the juice from 1/2 the lime.


Bring everything to a boil before covering the dish and letting it cook on low for 20 minutes.

In the last 5 minutes add the shrimp and the juice from the other half of the lime.


Serve with brown rice. ๐Ÿ™‚


I even surprised myself with how great this turned out. There was just the right mix of sweet and spiciness and plenty of veggies and shrimp to fill us up. Derek enjoyed it so much that he finished off whatever remained in the pan, then proceeded to slurp up any juice that was in his bowl.


Mango for the win! ๐Ÿ™‚

My afternoon snack was a mix of nuts, dried fruit, and peanut butter Cherrios.


Dessert was a serving of Moose Tracks Ice Cream.


My fave. ๐Ÿ™‚

And now it’s time for bed.

Good Night!

I’m going to try this recipe after I find a store nearbye that carries taste of Thai curry paste the other brands I’ve tried are far to mild.

Curry is on my list for next week. I’ve actually never made it before but I’ve just had a craving recently. Maybe I’ll have to pick up some mangos, too, because this looks wonderful!

whoa…I don’t mean this to be ‘mean’ but…why are those portions so small? Your ice cream and PB cheerios dish look like they’re in a ramekin. And your dinner (which looks delish! mmm, shrimp) looks like it was placed on a saucer. I’m genuinely concerned about this. Are you trying to lose weight? Because, girl, you are thin already and you workout A LOT. I really really hope you are eating more than what is posted on the blog, because this is alarming.

The ice cream and trail mix snacks are in blue ‘snack’ bowls (that’s what the labeling on the package called them when I bought the bowls) that are about the size size of ramekins. There’s more to the PB cheerios than just the cheerios – the bowl also contains almonds, walnuts, and dried fruit for a filling snack – and the ice cream was two scoops for a little more than a 1/2 cup serving. The Coconut Mango Curry was served in one of my favorite blue bowls that my grandmother gave me for Christmas a few years ago. It’s one of my favorite bowls because it’s wide rimmed and allows for more food. The serving size may look a little smaller in photos, but I promise it was just right – maybe 1/2 cup of rice (I’m not really a rice fan) with several scoops of the good stuff on top. I also munch on veggies as I cook – I’m always munching when I’m cooking! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am always amazed that people have so much free time to criticize or question others. Go volunteer or something instead of caring what portion size dishes flippin’ food bloggers use. GEEZ!

What a creative and good way to use them! I love shrimp curries but have never thought of making them at home!

Even though I’m not a huge shrimp fan, the combination of mango and curry (both which I love!) has my mouth watering. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
