2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1 cup [1½ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the curry.


Prep the curry ingredients

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Scrub or peel the carrot and trim the ends; cut the carrot in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into thin slices.
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Rinse and drain the shellfish. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.


Cook the curry

In a medium [large] sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the carrot and zucchini and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Add the Thai yellow curry sauce base and ½ cup [1 cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the shellfish and cook until just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes for shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes for scallops. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the rice to individual bowls. Top with the shellfish, vegetables, and curry sauce and serve.
