Blue Apron Meal One (Red Curry Shrimp Stir Fry)

My sister and I are considering getting Blue Apron’s meal service as a gift for our parents. My sister is an amazing cook and doesn’t need anything like Blue Apron. I am a barely competent cook so I agreed to try the service to evaluate if it would be good for our parents.

I signed up a few weeks ago and we received our first delivery yesterday. I chose the two person meal plan. The only thing I didn’t like about choosing the meals was that not all combinations are available. So, after I chose the top two meals, I had no choice but to pick the shrimp curry. Fox is allergic to shellfish so I don’t usually cook shrimp at home and I wasn’t sure that The Pilot or I would love a red curry. But, with no other option, I picked it.

Our order arrived in due course yesterday. Everything was packaged neatly and easy to understand. However, looking at it, I kept wondering if it was enough food for two people.

I made the Red Curry tonight and OMG! It was fantastic. The Pilot loved it! And it was more than enough for the two of us with at least enough for a lunch leftover. I tweeted the cooking process and thought I’d throw it into a storify for you all.

I have two more meals to make this week but so far, I highly recommend this service. Will keep you posted on tomorrow’s recipe too!
