Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp

I have had several emails requesting Weight Watcher recipes. Even though I am not on WW, I am always looking for healthy recipes for my family. I came across this recipe and thought it sounded really good, so I put it on my weekly menu (posted here). I was not disappointed, it was fantastic! The recipe came together quickly and with ease. In fact my 11 year old helped me with making dinner that night. It turned out very spicy which my older boys LOVED. They are always trying to prove their manliness with eating hot stuff. It is pretty funny. Anyway, if you do not want the heat, cut down on the red curry paste. Personally, I loved the spicy sauce over the jasmine rice, but it was a bit too hot for my little ones. I think next time I will try to decrease the curry paste by half, but either way this recipe is definitely a keeper! MMMMMmmm!!
