  1. Position oven rack 3 to 4 inches from the broiler; preheat broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Heat curry paste in a small saucepan over medium heat for 1 minute. Stir in coconut milk, honey and fish sauce and cook, stirring frequently, until reduced to about ½ cup, about 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer ¼ cup of the sauce to a large bowl (reserve remaining sauce for dipping). Stir in oil, lime juice, pepper and salt. Add shrimp, mushrooms and scallions; stir to combine. Thread shrimp, mushrooms and scallions onto eight 10- to 12-inch skewers and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Broil until the shrimp are cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve with the reserved sauce.
  • Equipment: Eight 10- to 12-inch skewers
  • Refrigerate leftover coconut milk for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 2 months. It will appear separated when thawed; simply shake until smooth.

With all the Thai ingredients, I was disappointed that it didn't have more flavor.
