Chef Shanna's crafted this slurp-worthy recipe to help you crush Valentine's Day, but also to avoid any regular "oops" night. You know: the night you discover the trendy new Thai restaurant is fully booked, so you decide on a romantic night in—but want to skip hunting down a good recipe, toting the groceries, and cooking for more than 40 minutes. Instead, rely on these long life noodles, tender shrimp, and snap peas slicked with creamy coconut curry.

Our chef-approved beer pairing: citrusy, effervescent Belgian farmhouse saison.

Cooking Steps

  1. Cook shrimp

    Cook shrimp

    Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over high heat. Pat shrimp dry with paper towel and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Heat 2 teaspoons canola oil in a medium high-sided pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until opaque and just pink, 4-6 minutes total. Using a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp to a plate and set aside. Wipe pan clean for Step 3.

  2. Prepare ingredients

    Prepare ingredients

    While shrimp cook, rinse all produce. Trim and discard scallion root and thinly slice crosswise on a diagonal, keeping whites and light greens separate from dark greens. Roughly chop peanuts, or leave in bag and gently crush with the bottom of a heavy pan. Mince garlic. Halve Thai chile lengthwise; using a knife tip, discard seeds and stem, then thinly slice crosswise.

  3. Sauté snow peas

    Sauté snow peas

    Return pan from shrimp to medium-high heat with 2 teaspoons canola oil. When oil is shimmering, add snow peas and scallion whites and light greens and sauté, stirring, until softened, 2-3 minutes.

  4. Cook rice noodles

    Cook rice noodles

    While snow peas cook, add rice noodles to pot with boiling water and immediately remove from heat. Gently stir to separate noodles and keep from sticking. Set aside to soak until tender, about 9 minutes (move on to Step 5—but don't forget to come back!). Then, drain noodles and immediately rinse under cold water for 30 seconds to stop cooking. Set aside.

  5. Simmer curry

    Simmer curry

    To pan with snow peas, still over medium-high heat, add soy sauce, curry paste, garlic, and half of peanuts and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add coconut milk (vigorously shake can before opening to avoid a messy splatter), ½ cup water, and ½ teaspoon salt. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until liquid is slightly reduced and flavors have melded, 4-5 minutes.

  6. Finish and plate shrimp curry

    Finish and plate shrimp curry

    Stir shrimp and rice noodles into pan with curry, still over medium heat, to warm through, 2 minutes more. Taste and add salt and pepper. Divide shrimp curry and rice noodles between serving bowls. Garnish with Thai chile (it's spicy, so adjust as desired), scallion dark greens, and remaining peanuts. Grab a beverage (see front of card for suggested pairing) and enjoy!
