Gina’s Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp — easy, quick, healthy & elegant

We never tire of shrimp here at the Greene House, and Jeff and I make or order Thai food on an almost weekly basis.  We love the fresh healthy ingredients that are always packed with flavor.  While some of our Thai or Thai-inspired dishes are a bit production-heavy, this delicious dish from one of our favorite food bloggers — Gina at SkinnyTaste.com — is quick and easy enough to prepare after a busy day at work, yet is elegant enough to serve for special occassions.
