Malaysian Shrimp(Fish) Curry

Tried a Malaysian recipe for the first time and came out very well. Lots of flavour. Seafood gently cooked in a skillet of coconut milk makes a mouthwatering curry for any occasion. Sambal, a fiery hot relish is usually served with this curry. Got this beautiful recipe from one of my prized cookbook featuring Asian recipes.


1 pound shrimp/ fish can also be used
salt to taste
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 in ginger root sliced
2 small red chillies seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic crushed
2 in lemon grass shredded
1 tbsp fish sauce
14 0z coconut milk( We used canned)
21/2 cups of chicken stock
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon


  1. Clean the shrimp and devein them. Season them with salt and set aside.
  2. Heat oil, ginger, chilies, garlic and lemon grass and fry briefly.
  3. Stir in the fish sauce  and strain the coconut milk through a seive and then add to skillet.
  4. Add the chicken stock, turmeric, sugar(We didnt use this), salt and lemon juice. Simmer for 10 mins.
  5. Add the shrimp and simmer for 6-8 mins. 
  6. Garnish with coriander and lime slices. This is usually served with steamed rice.
