Thai Peanut Shrimp Curry

Keto Recipes > Keto Lunch Recipes

When we’re on a ketogenic diet, bringing variety, trying new things, and enjoying new flavors is the way to do it – and this curry won’t disappoint. I know not many people like the word curry because it normally means one thing in a person’s mind. But there are tons of varieties of curry out there. Thai, Indian, Chinese, Malaysian – they all have their own special twists that make them unique to the region they’re made in. Today, we’re going with a Thai style curry, that won’t be spicy at all. It’s more like a soup that’s filled with delicious flavors!

This is a combination of some of my favorite flavors – coconut, peanut butter, lime and cilantro. It comes together to make a creamy and slightly thick base that’s filled with delicious fresh broccoli and shrimp. We first get a hint of coconut and lime when we taste the curry. Slowly, the peanut flavor brushes over our taste buds as we chew. Each and every bite will be unique, some getting broccoli and shrimp in one bite and getting a bit of garlic and cilantro in another.

Just remember, if you need this curry to be completely gluten free, opt out of the soy sauce and use coconut aminos. The fish sauce is normally going to include gluten, so make sure you have unprocessed fish sauce – my favorite brand is Red Boat Fish Sauce.
