Spicy shrimp casserole with curry and coconut milk

Sunday is the best excuse for a great family lunch! Easy, quick, colorful and delicious!

I just started playing with the ingredients, trying different variations of the shrimp casserole, or Brazilian moqueca – a very popular dish among the members or our household, and responding to the husband’s request, here it is, “step-by-step”, or better saying, “image-by-image”… 😮

First, get all the fresh ingredients (or as fresh as possible, but hey, nothing against a convenient bottle of garlic powder!) together. The shrimp needs to be peeled and cooked. After being cooked, it could be stored in the freezer, if needed. Able to get a some organic vegetables (tomatoes, bell peppers, onions), as well, and they looked beautiful!

Where hot sauce and curry meet... heaven!

Starting with some heat… curry & hot sauce:

Can you see the heat in action? look at the color of these bad boys!

Adding a very important ingredient to the marinating mix: beer!

Simmering all the ingredients.. allowing for all the flavors to rejoice!

...don't forget to add a bit more "liquid" to the mixture...

Bringing in another surprising ingredient: coconut milk – very popular member of the traditional Brazilian cuisine!

How should it look? Pretty much like this! 😮

Now, a quick look over the side dishes:

While you were working your magic with the shrimp casserole, rice was being cooked! It's simple like that!

Rice is done!

quick, easy, fluffy! like gradma's homecooking!

Another side order: organic veggies make a great and tasty salad!

Husband’s plate: [accompanied by his ‘favorite’ cold drink!]

Two of my most demanding [and happy] customers! Happy Sunday!
