Ingredients

Cilantro Lime Rice

  • 1/4 cup jasmine rice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 lime, juice and zest

Air Fryer Shrimp

  • 10 jumbo shrimp, U-12/15 peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons blacken seasoning
  • 2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 small white onion, thinly sliced

Coconut Curry Sauce

Instructions

Cilantro Lime Rice

  • Cook the rice according to package instructions. When fully cooked, mix in the cilantro, salt, lime juice, and zest.

Air Fryer Shrimp

  • Add the shrimp, olive oil, and blacken seasoning, bell peppers, and white onion to a mixing bowl and toss to combine.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 375° F. Place the seasoned shrimp and peppers in the air fryer basket and air fry for 12-15 minutes, until shrimp are fully cooked and peppers start to char.

Coconut Curry Sauce

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut milk and cornstarch. Set aside.
  • Heat the coconut oil in a medium-sized saucepan set over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger to the skillet, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. 
  • Whisk in the curry paste until well combined and cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in coconut milk mixture, and cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated and slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the lime juice, fish sauce, chili powder, ground cloves, and salt. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  • To serve, divide the rice, shrimp, and peppers between bowls. Spoon the coconut curry sauce over top and garnish with fresh cilantro.
