Coconut Shrimp Curry (SCD, GFCF)
This recipe was adapted from "The Ubiquitous Shrimp" by Judith Choate. It wasn't just adapted for the SCD, it was adapted for what I had on hand at the time. This dish was entirely scrounged up from my freezer and pantry. I wish I had some red bell peppers and cilantro on hand, they would have worked well. The original recipe called for cashews which I did not have, but you may want to add. This recipe makes a lot, which is on purpose. I wanted to have extra to freeze for lunches and busy nights. This is also my submission for this months "Go Ahead Honey It's Gluten-Free". The fabulous Zoe of "Z's Cup of Tea" is hosting and the theme is Dairy Free Delights
