Serves: 2, Prep Time: 10 minutes, Total Time: 25-30 minutes.
1 tbs. coconut oil
½ yellow onion (chopped)

½ cup water
1 carrot (peeled, sliced)

In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and cook for about 5 minutes until the onion has softened. Add the turmeric, salt, and cinnamon and stir to combine.
Stir in the coconut milk and water and bring to a gentle boil, then add the carrots. Stir often and let the carrots cook for 5 to 7 minutes until just tender.
Add the zucchini and the shrimp. Continue to stir often and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked through and zucchini is just tender. Stir in the lime juice, if using. Divide between plates & enjoy!
Chef's Tip: More Flavor: Use yellow curry powder instead of turmeric. Add cumin, chili powder or coriander. Additional toppings: Serve with cilantro, red pepper flakes or extra lime wedges.
