Talk about curry in a hurry! This dish comes together in one pot in under 20 minutes. Shrimp is succulent and tender when cooked in this deeply flavored broth of curry paste, coconut, and spices.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

The Medium Shallow Dish


  • ½ (75g) small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ (80g) medium bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon chili flakes
  • black pepper, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 cup (240g) coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • teaspoons cornstarch
  • ½ lb (225g) shrimp, peeled (about 8-12 shrimp)
  • Chopped cilantro and lime wedges to garnish


  1. Combine all the ingredients except for the shrimp and garnish into the Anyday and mix well, making sure the cornstarch is fully incorporated. Cover with lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 7-8 minutes, or until the mixture is fragrant and all the vegetables are very tender.
  3. Add shrimp to the curry and mix well. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time, until the shrimp is cooked through.
  4. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with lime wedges.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Serve over rice, couscous, or steamed veggies.
  • Try adding a teaspoon of finely chopped lemongrass.
  • Try it with diced firm tofu for a meat-free alternative

Recipe notes

  • If using frozen shrimp, use it directly from frozen, and add 1-2 minutes to the cooking time.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
