Recipe Ingredients for Shrimp Stew with Coconut Milk

3 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
1 large red bell pepper
4 scallions
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
13 1/2 oz. Coconut Milk, Canned (Liquid Expressed From Grated Meat And Water)
2 tbs lime juice

Recipe Directions for Shrimp Stew with Coconut Milk

  1. In a large bowl, sprinkle the shrimp with 1 tsp. salt; toss to coat, and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring, until almost tender, about 4 minutes. Add the scallion whites, 1/4 cup of the cilantro, the garlic, and the pepper flakes. Continue to cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 to 60 seconds.

  3. Add the tomatoes and coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer to blend the flavors and thicken the sauce slightly, about 5 minutes.

  4. Add the shrimp and continue to cook, partially covered and stirring frequently, until the shrimp are just cooked through, about 5 minutes more. Add the lime juice and season to taste with salt. Serve sprinkled with the scallion greens and remaining 1/4 cup cilantro.
