  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1 lb peeled medium shrimp
  • 1 diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 chopped zucchini (small) (or make as zoodles)
  • 1 stalk lemongrass (finely chopped) (or 5 drops lemongrass essential oil)
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp finely chopped ginger
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp red curry paste (or red curry powder)
  • 2 13 oz cans unsweetened coconut milk
  • 4 cups chicken bone broth (or vegetable stock)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro (more to garnish)


  • In a large soup pot or dutch oven, melt the coconut oil over a medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes until pink. Salt to taste then remove to a bowl.
  • To the pot, add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, and zucchini. Stir occasionally until tender (4-5 minutes). Add in the ginger and lemongrass and cook another minute.
  • Whisk in the curry paste and then the coconut milk, stock, and pepper. Bring it all to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until the soup thickens slightly (about 10 minutes).
  • Stir in the shrimp, lime juice, and cilantro and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve in bowls and garnish with fresh lime wedges and cilantro.
