In this quick shrimp recipe, shrimp is paired with a coconut curry and tender eggplant. Red, yellow or green curry works well in this quick dinner. To keep it fast, serve with precooked brown rice to sop up the sauce.
Whisk coconut milk, curry paste and garlic powder in a large saucepan. Add eggplant and scallions; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook for 6 minutes. Add shrimp, cover and continue cooking until the shrimp are just cooked through and the eggplant is tender, about 4 minutes more. Stir in basil (and/or cilantro) and serve with lime wedges, if desired.
