To Try: Sunset’s Coconut Milk Shrimp


“I grew up with this recipe in northeast Brazil,” says Perlla Fonvielle. These days, she makes it with wild Oregon shrimp.

  • Yield: Serves 4
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 teaspoon red chile flakes

  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 pound shelled and deveined medium shrimp (26 to 30 per lb.)
  • Steamed rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • Lime wedges

1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook onion, carrot, and chile flakes until onion is softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in coconut milk. Add tomato and shrimp and cook until mixture is simmering and shrimp are pink, about 4 minutes.

2. Spoon shrimp mixture over rice and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.
