Let's check the texture, so this is the texture. It's close to being in powder form and now that you're done using the shrimp curry paste, you just have to fold it like this and make sure that there's no air inside and just put it back here at the tub.

So it's very easy. Place it back here and then you just have to close it again. So first we're going to need a pan or a skillet, and then we have to heat the pan and make sure that the pan is already hot before adding the oil. Now that the pan is hot, let's add the oil. Swirl the pan to spread the oil. Once the oil is hot, we can now add the green and red pepper. Just stir fry the green and red pepper for three to four minutes until it's tender.

After three minutes, you have to set aside the peppers so that it won't over cook. Now we can add the garlic, and just saute it for a minute until fragrant. Now that it's fragrant, we can add the red onions. And then saute it again until the onions are translucent. Then let's add our main ingredient, shrimps. Make sure that the shrimps are already de veined and shelled for easier cooking, but you can leave the tails of the shrimp. Let's stir fry the shrimp. Stir fry it until it's cooked or the color is a bit orange or pink, but the over cook it.

As you can see, the shrimps are already turning into color orange. These are small shrimps, but you can use the jumbo ones. So I think this is okay already. Let's add the main ingredient, the Mae Ploy red curry paste. Combine it with the shrimps. Or you can toast it for better flavor. Now let's pour the coconut milk. Then the water. Let's mix the coconut milk and water with the shrimps and red curry paste. Just stir it continuously until it's well combined and the color is no longer white.

As you can see the color of the sauce is already turning into orange. We have to let this one boil for five minutes. Now that it's boiling, you have to stir it again and reduce the heat to low, and just let it simmer for another three minutes. After three minutes, stir it again. The sauce is already thick so now we can add back the red and green peppers to warm through. Now mix it again. We can now turn off the heat and then add the pineapple. Then just mix it again. Now we're going to serve this one with rice and top it with parsley. Now I have hot rice here and then we can serve the shrimp and pineapple curry. So that's it, and then we just have to top it with coriander, parsley, or basil.

So here's our finished recipe. So this is the shrimp and pineapple red curry, and this recipe is good for two serves. We use our main ingredients, which is the Mae Ploy red curry paste.
