Red Shrimp Curry Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4

This is a fantastic weekday recipe because it's so quick and easy to make. A combination of red curry paste, honey, and coconut milk makes a flavorful sauce that doesn't overpower the delicacy of shrimp. You can easily make this with a mix of almost any vegetables you have at the house, but we like the mix of textures from adding water chestnuts and tender bamboo shoots.

Don't be afraid to pair sparkling wine with food - it's not just for entertaining or canapes! The acidity and bubbles make a fine counterpoint to exotic flavors, such as the curry in this dish. We like the full body of a rosé sparkler with the red curry and meaty shrimp. Our Steal is a fabulous French rosé for just $10 - stock up at this price! For our Splurge, we've chosen a finely balanced selection from classic Napa sparkling wine house, Domaine Chandon.

French-inspired sparkling wine from this Napa winery, with more toasty complexity than the Vernay. ($22)
