Thai Style Green Curry Shrimp

One of my all time favorite Thai dishes is the Masaman Curry. Potatoes, coconut milk, rice, beef, and basil yum! Back on track with Weight Watcher's, Masaman is a bit of a no-no. I believe one cup sans rice is 11 points :( I came across this dish for Thai Shrimp Curry a while ago and always wanted to give it a try. Similar to my favorite but only three points! Even with a cup of rice it's still very low in points at 8pts. You can feel like you are cheating when you are not :) Cost is great too for a shrimp dish. Eat this out and it will cost you about $15 bucks per serving. Score!
