200 grams shrimp
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 medium yellow onion,
      chopped roughly
1/2 medium carrot,
     chopped roughly
1 stalk celery, chopped roughly
1 tablespoon red curry paste
1/2 cup coconut cream
2 large eggs, beaten

1/2 cup frozen green peas

Remove shells of shrimp and reserve. Devein shrimp and slice the backs halfway through; set aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Sauté onions, carrots, and celery. Add shrimp shells and cook until deep orange in color.

5  Still in the same pan, sauté bell peppers and peas. Add shrimp and stir-fry. When almost cooked, pour curry cream in, followed by rice. Toss and mix well.

Mixing tip: you can add more seafood (like squid and fish fillets) to the mix or replace shrimp with chicken.
