Thai Red Curry Coconut Noodles are so addictive. I crave good Thai red curry with coconut milk and this is another take-out fake-out that I love to make. And I thought what a better way to satisfy my noodle craving and my curry craving than combining the two.
This is a really easy one wok meal. If you don’t own a wok, a large pan works great, but I highly suggest in investing in a wok. I just think food tastes better in a wok, just like my theory that food always tastes better in a cast iron.
You can make these noodles with grilled chicken, sauteed shrimp, or even with some seared sliced beef. I had shrimp on hand, I also had some roasted red peppers in the jar that I used but by all means roast up your own red peppers if you got em’. I like the subtle spicy flavor of red curry but if you want to kick it up a notch, add in some red pepper flakes. It’s all about preference.
Wine Pairing Recommendation: Call me crazy but I really love a red wine with Thai food, a light fruity Pinot Noir or a Sangiovese is perfect.
