Garlic Shrimp in Coconut Lime Tomato Sauce {Quick and Healthy Dinner!}


Wow,talk yabo亚博全站APPabout the power of a completely unassuming (and super fast!) shrimp dish.This is incredibly delicious.Incredibly.Delicious.

我提得特别快吗?对虾最棒的是;yabo亚博全站APPyou can usually count on it being a pretty quick meal to throw together and I never,ever complain yabo亚博全站APPabout that.Do you??


我碰巧爱虾胜过爱生命本身。It's definitely in my top-foods-ever category.And it's because of yabo亚博体育APPrecipes like this – the tasty,quick and really healthy ones – that keep me coming back for more.

The combination of light and creamy coconut milk with tomatoes,大蒜,a hint of lime and cilantro…well,这是惊人的。Light and fresh and fantastic.

The sauce is definitely on the saucy side of things so serving this in shallow bowls so the beautiful,warm rice can soak up the wonderful sauciness is a really good idea.

Consider yourself warned.

And just to leave you on a happy note,here are a few of my other favorite shrimp dishes:

Garlic Shrimp in Coconut Lime Tomato Sauce

产量: 6 servings
Prep Time: 20分钟
Cook Time: 20分钟
总时间: 40 minutes


  • 2 pounds jumbo shrimp,剥皮脱毛
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large red bell pepper,切碎的
  • 6 green onions,切成薄片的白色和绿色部分
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 6瓣大蒜,finely minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

  • 2 cans (14-ounce each) light coconut milk
  • 1汤匙新鲜酸橙汁(约1个酸橙)yabo亚博全站APP
  • Hot,cooked basmati,jasmine or long-grain rice for serving


  1. 在平底锅里,heat the olive oil on medium and add the red peppers,cooking until crisp-tender,yabo亚博全站APPabout 2-3 minutes.Add the sliced green onions,both white and green parts,1/2 cup of the cilantro,red pepper flakes (if using) and garlic.Cook,stirring constantly,for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  2. 加入西红柿,coconut milk and salt to taste (I used yabo亚博全站APPabout 1 teaspoon).Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes to help develop the flavors and reduce the sauce just slightly.
  3. Add the shrimp and cook for 4-5 minutes until the shrimp are pink and tender (overcooking the shrimp will make them tough so keep a close eye on the mixture).
  4. Stir in the lime juice.Serve immediately over hot,用剩下的芫荽装饰的米饭。This makes a soupier-type mixture so deep plates or bowls would be best for serving.
