Pineapple Shrimp Curry Recipe

Looking for a light, slightly sweet curry? Try this shrimp and pineapple variation. Perfect for a hot summer day!


  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil, divided
  • 2 Tbsp green curry paste
  • 1 (13.5 oz) can coconut milk, shaken
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 ¼ lb peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1 ½ cups chopped yellow onion
  • 1 ¼ cups chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 3 Tbsp thinly sliced scallions
  • 3 Tbsp chopped unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 2 cups of cooked rice


  1. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in medium saucepan on med-high heat. Add curry paste and cook, stirring constantly, for one minute. Add coconut milk, give it a good stir, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in lime juice, soy sauce, and fish sauce.
  2. In another large skillet (I used a wok) heat 1 Tbsp oil on high. Add shrimp. Cook until opaque, maybe 4-5 minutes (watch these babies, if you over cook them they will be tough). Remove shrimp to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add remaining 1 Tbsp oil to shrimp pan. Add onion and bell pepper and cook on med–high, stirring often, for about 2-3 minutes. Add curry/ coconut milk mixture to peppers and onions. Toss in shrimp, pineapple and half the cilantro cook for one minute more.
  4. Serve curry over rice with a garnish of scallions, peanuts and remaining cilantro.
