Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp

I have been on a curry kick as of late.  But it's offically over. lol. I guess having eggplant curry and now shrimp curry in the same week was TOO much curry for this household.  This shrimp was soo good and once I'm in the mood for curry again I'll be making this dish.  It is another recipe from Gina's weight watchers website I was dying to try and I'm so glad I did.  Hope you enjoy it as well.
