Thai curries are known for their delicious balance of spicy, sweet and savory flavors. Here, we’re capturing that combination in a quick stir-fry. We’re simmering crisp shrimp and tender rice noodles in a broth of red curry paste (made with red chile peppers and heady spices) and rich coconut milk, rounded out with a refreshing splash of lime juice. Springtime pea shoots make for an elegant, delicate garnish.
