Coconut Yellow Curry Shrimp Ramen Noodle Soup

I always though any curry dish was something with a ton of ingredients and a recipe that needed to develop flavors over long periods of time. Well I was wrong. This recipe came together in 30 minutes and I made it all in 1 large stock pot meaning minimal dishes and clean up!

Also, I am not a huge curry fan. For the longest time I didn’t even think I liked curry. Then I tried yellow curry and was like “OK. I can get into this.”

And here we are.

For the development of this recipe I have partnered with JSL Foods using their Fortune noodles as part of the #FortuneCares charitable donation project. This project helps families affected by food instability issues by giving back to the most vulnerable in our communities who are struggling with economic losses due to COVID-19 and who are turning to charitable organizations to feed their families. The creation of this recipe has influenced a $5.00 donation to the Los Angeles Food Bank.

I encourage you to take a minute to learn more about this project and the “Post A Recipe To Make A Difference” campaign to see how you can get involved…and get some Fortune noodles for yourself to try!
