Red Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp

I saw this post over at Gina's Skinny Recipes and thought it looked like a wonderful, quick meal. It was super easy to put together - the most time consuming part was peeling the shrimp. You can buy them already peeled and deveined, but I find it's less expensive to buy them split and deveined only, frozen. The fresh ones at the store have usually already been thawed, so you're actually getting fresher shrimp by buying them still frozen. Anyway, this recipe was a cinch to put together, and it was very good. I think that a squeeze of lime at the end may have been nice, but I'll try that out next time. It's definitely a good recipe to have for a quick weeknight meal.
