Red Curry Shrimp with Mango and Pineapple


I LOVE Thai food, especially anything with curry.  The fruit in this red curry shrimp dish gives it that sweet and savory combo that is so delicious.  It is not very spicy because I have to make things less spicy these days with the little one, but if you want it with more of a kick, add some sriracha!

paleo primal red curry with shrimp mango and pineapple


  • 1 1/2 pounds of shrimp
  • 1 tsp. of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of thinly sliced onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper. thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. can of pineapple tidbits with juice
  • 1 mango, sliced
  • 1 cup of full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp. red curry paste
  • 2 tbsp. of chopped cilantro


  1. Add sliced onions to hot pan over medium high heat, with no oil, and cook until slightly browned.
  2. Move onions to the side and add coconut oil, cook shrimp about two minutes on each side.
  3. Add bell pepper and cook a few minutes until slightly softened.
  4. Add the coconut milk, fish sauce, red curry paste, pineapple with the juice and mango.  Simmer for a about 3-5 more minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cilantro.

You can serve this on a plate, but I ended up eating it in a bowl because the juices were sooo yummy.  You can also serve this over some cauliflower rice.  I was going to try that and could have sworn I had one at home in my fridge, but I didn’t, so I will have to try that next time, but it definitely doesn’t need it and is amazing on its own!

  • […] 15. Red Curry Shrimp Stir Fry Shrimp is a great food to eat while on Paleo, as is most foods that come from the sea. Serving them up in a red curry is a wonderful way to bring out their flavor, but let’s not forget the veggies. Here they’re using bell peppers and onions to round out the meal, and plenty of seasonings to get the flavor just right, like curry paste and fish sauce. Coconut milk helps give it that classic curry taste, and this is a quick dish to make up whenever you have the ingredients on hand. […]
