Method: Heat the oil in a large frying pan over -high heat. Add the white parts of the green onion and red curry paste and fry for two minute. Add the garlic, shrimp, and peas, and continue frying for another 4 minutes. Add the coconut milk and fish sauce, and mix thoroughly. Simmer mixture for 2 to 3 minutes, or until shrimp is firm.
