Mmmmmm... Shrimp

Last night I made shrimp for dinner, and since it is one of my favorite shrimp dishes I will share with you the recipe, and a picture of course :)
Recipe:  serving amounts vary based on how much rice is eaten with it.
1/2 a regular 8oz can of coconut milk
1 cup of shrimp
1 cup of rice
curry
coriander
cumin
paprika
garlic
those last five ingredients don't have measurements because you need to add as much or as little as you like (a good amount is when after you add the spices to the coconut milk it starts to turn orange)

Start cooking the rice, either in a pan or in a rice cooker.  In a medium-ish pan, heat up the coconut milk at medium heat.  While the milk is heating peel the shrimp.  After the milk is heated add spices and mix till the milk is orange.  Add the shrimp to the pan and cover for five minutes, lower the heat just a bit.  Then flip each shrimp over they should be nice and shrimpy-pink, cook for another 4-5 minutes.  Put the rice on a dish and scoop shrimp and coconut sauce over top.  Mmmmmm......

Here is what it should look like
