Maria's Coconut Curried Shrimp
2 lbs wild shrimp, peeled, deveined
2 Tbs coconut oil
1 small onion, diced
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 T red curry paste (I use Thai Kitchen brand)
1-2 tsp sriracha sauce
1-2 tsp raw honey
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper
1 can of coconut milk, preferably native forest brand, full fat
Fresh cilantro and basil, chopped

Sautee shrimp in coconut oil until opaque, a few minutes, over medium heat. Set aside. Sautee onion for a few minutes, add red curry paste and sautee until it smells heavenly, which will happen in 60 seconds flat!---Now add in minced garlic so that it doesnt burn and sautee for 1 minute

Add can of full fat coconut milk. Add honey, sriracha, lime juice and salt and pepper as desired.

Add shrimp back to this pink tinged heavenly sauce and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Add in cilantro and basil as soon as you turn off the heat.

Serve over "riced" cauliflower-- Here's an easy recipe--- pulverize cauliflower in a food processor until it looks like rice grains. Sautee in a pan w some coconut oil. Add chopped cilantro if desired. Season with salt and pepper
