Curry is a combination of spices that carry a wide mixture of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Combine them with the protein in shrimp for a delicious, healthy meal.

Step 1
Thaw and drain large wild shrimp. In large freezer bag, toss shrimp with curry, chopped garlic, salt and cayenne pepper. Chop broccoli or snap peas.

Step 2
Heat skillet and add shrimp, then add ghee or coconut oil. Cook until shrimp are pink (avoid overcooking) and remove from pan. Add chopped broccoli or snap peas to pan, cover and steam until tender. Mix together with shrimp, sprinkle with toasted coconut. Save some shrimp for tomorrow’s lunch.

Serves: 2
Prep: 15 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes

  • 1 pound large wild shrimp
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli, or
  • 2 cups chopped snap peas
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup toasted coconut

    So this recipe needs the peas removing since it’s in the Two Week Test section and those are not allowed!

  • Essie says:

    Hi can you tell me if seeds are allowed on 2WT, and. Yoghurt and how do you know which cheeses are unprocessed please.

    • Hi Essie

      Seeds are allowed. The easiest way to buy unprocessed cheese is to go to the cheese counter you find on high-end supermarkets. Most of those cheeses are unprocessed. Also, the more aged the cheese, the less likely it is to be unprocessed.

    Hello Ivan,
    Sorry I am asking you the question here but since the subject is open about coconut oil and milk, i am taking advantage of it: is natural coconut water ok to drink during the TWT (fresh I mean not bottled). How about the flesh of the coconut ( it’s not on the NO fruit list)
    I am a swimmer and normally I would drink the natural coconut water in between laps.
    Thanks a bunch

  • Snow says:

    Are snap peas allowed during the 2 week test?

    • Hello Snow – they are not allowed as they are legumes


      • Jason says:

        Wait a minute…

        Ivan’s answer is in total contraddiction to the MAF app and the YES foods indicated under the 2 Week test. Snow peas are legumes – but the app says they are all YES foods.

        Ivan, I believe you’re mistaken on this one.

        • Hi Jason,

          it turns out that the MAF app is kind of misleading in the way it portrays the food lists: the food lists that are shown when you open the nutrition section are NOT for the two-week test. You get shown food lists for the TWT that are identical to the ones on the site once you start the two-week test. Sorry about that – we’re in the process of fixing it!

    I made a modified version of this last night using a coconut curry recipe I found on line from Real Simple (I omitted the sugar) . All other ingredients appear to be within the guidelines of the 2-Week test. This makes the sauce/base. After that I sauteed the shrimp at noted here using whatever curry powder I had (it’s hard to go wrong with curry so don’t be afraid to experiment) and just ball-parked how much of that and the other ingredients based on how spicy I like my food. Then I sauteed up the veggies per the instructions. I also added zucchini and onion. It was incredibly delicious! Next time I will try adding a little veggie stock to the coconut curry base so it’s not quite as rich (from the coconut milk)

  • neale says:

    I think the recipe above is fine. Add a tin of coconut milk and curry powder to what is already there and it should be fine.

  • Mark Farrell says:

    Hi ,

    During the two week test, are curry powder and spices allowed to Brighten things up a bit?

    Thanks in advance

    It would be nice if the picture reflected the actual recipe. The picture looks delicious, but this isn’t the recipe for that.

  • Cindy M says:

    It’s been over 6 months and still no “curry” info? This should take minutes to update.

    I would guess any homemade curry blend would work. You can find good recipes online for your blend. That typically means cumin, coriander, cardamom, turmeric, dry mustard and cayenne (or chili flakes). Some people add ginger as well. I would guess 2 teaspoons- 1 tablespoon would do it, depending on how strong you prefer the flavors to be.
