This dish is makes enjoying beer for me almost new again. It combines flavors that we don’t often enjoy with beer. The shrimp are pan fried crisp and the creamy, spicy sauce is perfect for dousing with a ice cold beer.

Being that the pairing of curry and beer is revered in the UK I thought it best to highlight a brewery from there. Wychwood Brewery. They have a brew called the Wychcraft that is referred to as a blonde beer. It is light zesty beer that matches well with citrus and and heat.

1lb of deviened shrimp, shelled
2 green peppers
1 medium white onion
1 large carrot
3 cans of coconut milk
2 Tbsp of Green Curry
flour for dredging the shrimp
1 bunch of Cilantro

1. Toss your shrimp in in the flour and coat well. In a large pan big enough to house the amount of sauce you will need add about two cups of vegetable oil. Heat on a medium heat and fry your shrimp. They should be nice and pink through the flour. Set aside

2. Slice your carrot, onion and green pepper in very thin matchstick sized pieces. A mandoline helps or a really sharp knife. Dump the frying oil from your pan leaving just a little to coat it inside. Place back over a medium heat and saute your vegetables starting with the onion until they are softened.

3. Add your coconut milk and allow to come to a simmer. Once simmering, mix in your green curry paste and reduce by half. Season with salt and pepper. Finally finishing with your chopped cilantro.

4. Toss your shrimp in the sauce and divvy out in bowls. I like to serve with fresh lime wedges and dry crumbled chili.
