Paleo Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers

I’m so excited to share this recipe because I love it so much that I actually made it twice this week. Shrimp is one of those things I tend to forget about and then when I do remember to cook them, I can’t get over how delicious they are. Especially when paired with some delicious spices and flavors, it really can’t be beat.

This recipe started out with me just putting random ingredients together that I had in the kitchen to make the marinade. This is how some of my best recipes start sometimes. Nothing planned, just organically coming together from me experimenting with whatever available ingredients I have. It’s just the best feeling when it turns out as amazing as these Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers.

What is it about food on stick that makes them so much more tastier? These Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers are the best cooked on the grill, but you can still enjoy them if you don’t have one. Just broil them for the same amount of time, or you can just pan fry them without putting them on skewers. Although, if you are like me, that’s definitely not as fun to eat!

Coconut Chicken Curry (Instant Pot or Slow Cooker)

Ughhh, is everyone feeling off today because of Daylight Savings? Why does that exist? I had such a hard time waking up this morning and now I feel a bit disoriented. At least the sun won’t set until after dinner, which is always a good thing for a food blogger like me. Natural light > artificial light when it comes to food photography.

Enough complaining, Jean. It’s time to share a fan-freakin-tastic recipe: coconut chicken curry! There was a time when I wouldn’t even want to attempt Indian cooking because it just seemed complicated and difficult in my head. Maybe it was all the spices they use, but I was just a tad intimidated. It wasn’t until recently that I started regularly cooking curry at home, and I have become obsessed.

Maybe it’s just me, but there’s a huge sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when I’m able to recreate my favorite dish from a restaurant at home. And with a slow cooker or Instant Pot, it’s EXTRA easy, and this coconut chicken curry came together with minimal effort.

I made a giant batch and I’ve been eating the leftover for lunch for the past 3 days and I’m still not sick of it. C isn’t a huge fan of Indian food, but even he said that the flavors were spot on. So ya gotta try it out!

If you are on a sugar detox, feel free to just eat the curry alone or eat it with cauliflower rice. I love regular ol’ white rice and I feel really great on it so I will always choose that. Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy this coconut chicken curry as much as I did! I know I’ll be making curry at home way more often now that I know how easy it is.

Curry Chicken Skewers

Paleo Curry Chicken Skewers-1

Okay, so I know it’s Fall and all, but it was in the 80s all throughout the weekend and I think you can grill any time of the year. Also, I teased about sharing this curry chicken skewers recipe for months both on Snapchat and Instagram Stories so here it is (FINALLY)!

I love food on skewers. They are super fun, but more importantly, they are so easy to make. Most of the time, the steps are: season or marinate, thread food on stick, then cook. Um… can we have skewers everyday please? Honestly, it’s so delicious!

Paleo Curry Chicken SkewersThese curry chicken skewers tastes best cooked on the grill, but you can also use the broiling method if you don’t own a grill. I’m just obsessed with the smoky flavor and the char you can get from grilling just about anything so I will always prefer that method.

Also, I honestly don’t think you’ll have to scale down on the curry if you aren’t a fan of spicy. It’s mild enough to satisfy anyone’s taste buds, and in fact, I recommend you add more curry paste if you like spicy. Since C can’t handle to much spice and I LURVE spicy, I cook most meals mild and add more spice to my plate right before serving. I’m so happy with how these turned out, so I hope you make them!
