This rainy day in San Diego was a nice treat, but it made for terribly lighting in my kitchen.

Looking for something different to cook for dinner? This recipe is so easy, so quick and SO delicious. 

I am currently doing a 30 day nutrition and fitness challenge, so I took the recipe I found online and made it my own. Now, it's okay to eat during my challenge. AND my family loved it! So I am happy to say, this recipe is gluten free, no soy, no dairy, and ALMOST vegan... if you consider shrimp off limits.

If you don't have curry powder on hand, no problem. Hopefully you have these essential thai spices on hand: salt, pepper, coriander, cumin, turmeric, whole cloves and cayenne pepper.
