Two bowls of shrimp laksa curry served with chopped green onions, cilantro, and peanuts.

When it comes to weekday dinner, nothing beats a delicious one-bowl meal that is loaded with goodies and nutrition. The dinner recipes we love the most include: Restaurant-Style Beef Chow Fun, Beef Rice Bowl, Beef Zoodle Bowl, and  Sheet Pan Broiled Fish with Potato and Peppers.

I was thrilled to receive a copy of Nourishing Superfood Bowls: 75 Healthy and Delicious Gluten-Free Meals to Fuel Your Day by my friend Lindsay Cotter last week. It is a cookbook that teaches you to make beautiful wholesome one-bowl meals that are packed with superfoods, flavorful combinations of grains, proteins, and vegetables.

Lindsay is a Nutrition Specialist for sports nutrition and gluten-free eating. She is AASDN certified and the owner behind the popular food blog Cotter Crunch. When she was living in Austin, she would share her impressive no-bake energy bites, which are super delicious and packed with healthy fuels. I was so excited when I heard she was about to write a book on delicious one-bowl meals.

There are so many great recipes in her book that I’m planning to try out. For example, Orange Chicken and Broccoli Rice Bowls, Creamy Avocado Tuna Zoodle Bowls, Tex Mex Burrito Bowls. But first, I cooked the Shrimp Laksa Curry Bowls, because the recipe looked irresistible!

The cooking was extremely easy and the result was SO GOOD! The juicy shrimp and tender noodles are smothered in a rich coconut milk curry sauce. The prep and cooking takes about 30 minutes. The bowl is packed with lean protein and spices that are rich with anti-inflammatory properties. I folded in a cup of green peas at the end, to complete the meal with veggies. I can’t wait to make it again because my husband ate two bowls without leaving me enough lol

I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do!

Description

A scrumptious shrimp laksa curry bowl made with juicy shrimp and tender noodles soaked in a coconut curry sauce.

The recipe is adapted from Nourishing Superfood Bowls: 75 Healthy and Delicious Gluten-Free Meals to Fuel Your Day by Lindsay Cotter.

For a gluten-free dish, use dry sherry instead of Shaoxing wine, and tamari instead of soy sauce.


Ingredients

  • 6 oz (170 g) Asian rice noodles
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • (Optional) 1 cup frozen green peas, microwaved

Marinade (*Footnote 1)

  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine (dry sherry)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cooking

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (13.66 oz / 403 ml) can coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Toppings

  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • (Optional) 1 to 2 Thai red chili peppers, seeded and sliced (*Footnote 2)
  • (Optional) Toasted sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions

  1. Soak the rice noodles according to the instructions on the package, until al dente.
  2. Add the shrimp into a small bowl and all the marinade ingredients. Mix well and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the curry paste. When it starts to sizzle, cook and stir for 1 minute to release the fragrance.
  4. Add the ginger and garlic. Cook another 30 seconds or so.
  5. Add the coconut milk, soy sauce, and sugar. Cook and stir until bringing to a boil.
  6. Add the shrimp. Cook and stir until just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
  7. Add the rice noodles. Stir and cook for another minute to mix everything well.
  8. (Optional) Fold in green peas, if using, and stir to mix well.
  9. Transfer into serving bowls, squeeze lime juice, top with cilantro, green onion, and black pepper. Garnish with red chili peppers and sesame seeds, if using. Enjoy!

Notes

1.  Marinating the shrimp will make them more flavorful and keep them very tender during cooking. Skip this step if you do not want alcohol in your dish.

2. Thai red chili peppers are very hot. Replace them with other types of peppers or skip them if you want a less spicy dish.
