Thai Red Curry Shrimp Patties (and they’re Paleo)

Paleo Thai Shimp CakesWow! I love Thai flavours… Red curry, green curry, masaman curry, galangal, lime leaf, lemon grass, oh my! Thai food is one of my favorites.

Back in the day we used to make these with day old rice as the base. Now I use coconut flour and almond meal to replace the rice.

We are having our grand re-opening at Crossfit Pickering this weekend and I have been tasked with catering the event. It had been a while since I made these Paleo Patties, so tonight I had a taste test with my girlfriend… Holy Delicious!!


  • 1 lb Shrimp
  • 1/4 c Celery (minced)
  • 1/4 c Green Pepper (minced)
  • 1/4 c Almond Meal
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 2 tbsp Red Curry Paste
  • 2 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • Coconut Oil for frying


  1. Put all the ingredients (except the oil) into a food processor and puree to a paste.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan to med/high
  3. Using 2 spoons, scoop some shrimp mix out with one spoon and using the second spoon, place it into the hot oil.
  4. When the bottom of the pattie starts to brown, flip them over and cook for about a minute.
  5. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  6. Serve with Thai Basil Mayo.
