Low-carb coconut lime shrimp curry with cauliflower rice


I had no intention of writing a blog post about this recipe, but it's just too good not to share. This recipe is the result of me craving Thai food, having a little extra time to spend in the kitchen, and recently getting an Amazon Prime grocery delivery.

William said this recipe belongs on my "greatest hits" list. It only makes enough for about two people, so I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe if you plan to make it for more people.

If you prefer white rice over cauliflower rice, make the rice as directed but substitute the coconut milk and lime juice for water in a 3/4 to 1/4 ratio.
