Malaysian Shrimp Curry

This spicy curry is comforting and delicious. High in protein and packed with antioxidants and great anti-inflammatory turmeric, this dish looks easier than it sounds. It can also be whipped up pretty quick if you have all the ingredients on hand and out. I love to soak up the left over sauce poured over rainbow quinoa.
This serves 2 nicely, so double it for sure for leftovers.

  • 1 Large onion diced
