Thai Green Curry with Shrimp & Mango 
Serves 3-4

2 tbsp of Thai Green Curry Powder 
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp oil (try sunflower oil, coconut oil, or grapeseed oil)
1 can (14 fluid oz) unsweetened coconut milk
1 small red bell pepper – sliced thinly
12oz (about 26-30 counts) raw jumbo shrimp – peeled and deveined
1 mango – diced
1 tsp coconut sugar, or to taste
1 tsp fish sauce, or to taste (you can use salt instead)
A handful of Thai basil leaves or sweet basil leaves (I used a mix)
One or two squeezes of lime juice

1. In a small bowl, combine Thai Green Curry Powder with water and oil, and mix into a paste.
2. Do not shake the can of coconut milk before opening, so that the thick cream remains separate from the milky part. Spoon the thick cream out of the can (about 2/3 of the contents), add into a large frying pan/saucepan, and heat over medium heat. Stir gently, and let the coconut milk reduce until smooth and bubbly. You will see a thin layer of oil appear on top.
3. Add in the green curry paste and cook the cream for about a minute. Stir as it cooks, until mixture is well combined and aromatic. Then pour in the remaining coconut milk.
4. Add in the red bell pepper and cook for about 2 minutes, until it begins to boil. Reduce heat, add in shrimp and mango, and let simmer until shrimp turns opaque and pink, about 3-4 minutes.
5. Season with fish sauce/salt and sugar. Taste and adjust any seasonings if needed. Continue to simmer for another minute. Stir in fresh Thai basil leaves and/or sweet basil leaves, and large squeezes of lime juice. Remove from heat and serve with rice or vermicelli noodles.
