This dish is the perfect weeknight comfort food. It’s quick, but soul-satisfying, and since it serves at least six, you’ll have leftovers—which will be even more flavorful the next day.
In a large bowl, sprinkle the shrimp with 1 tsp. salt; toss to coat, and set aside.
Heat the oil in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring, until almost tender, about 4 minutes. Add the scallion whites, 1/4 cup of the cilantro, the garlic, and the pepper flakes. Continue to cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 to 60 seconds.
Add the tomatoes and coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer to blend the flavors and thicken the sauce slightly, about 5 minutes.
Add the shrimp and continue to cook, partially covered and stirring frequently, until the shrimp are just cooked through, about 5 minutes more. Add the lime juice and season to taste with salt. Serve sprinkled with the scallion greens and remaining 1/4 cup cilantro.

When I have shrimp, this is the dish I think of. So delicious with Basmati rice. I add a tsp+ of sugar and a tablespoon of fish sauce. Great comfort food. Quick and easy.
Yum! My husband is not fond of shellfish, but he loved this. I added diced sweet potato and green peas, just cuz I like lots of veg, and threw in a few splashes of fish sauce. Served over coconut rice - perfect.
