I get so giddy when Trader Joe’s comes out with a new sauce. This Thai style green chili sauce immediately caught my eye! It’s brand new. It’s a tiny bit spicy with garlic, shallot, lemon grass and Thai lime leaves. I combined it with some coconut cream to make the most comforting and delicious Thai style sauce. I served mine with shrimp and sliced mini peppers. I love the red Argentine shrimp from Trader Joe’s. They almost taste like lobster!

This dish is the perfect spring transitional recipe. It’s still warm and cozy. But, it’s very light and fresh. To make into more of a meal, I suggest serving it over some rice. Also, adding more veggies is a great way to make it more filling!

    Really delicious!! super buttery from the coconut cream and loved the green chili sauce. We served with rice and boK choy as a side. The only thing we would change is to adD more heaT if you Love spice. perhaps via green chilis themselves. Next time wE plan to try oven roasted broccoli added at the end witH the shrimp for Some added greens. I think they maY AbSorb the sauce really nicely. Otherwise this is Super awesome, and we will definitely be Making it again.

      cream – I will fix that!


        Thank you! I just made tHis for dinner and served with cauli rice. So good!


    Absolutely delicious. Added carrots and zucchini to the peppers and served it on a bed of RICE. Great RECIPE, will make again


    Grabbed this sauce when it arrived then wondered what to do with it! Thanks for posting this recipe. Of course, didn’t have all the ingredients – instead of shrimp I used Pacific cod in 1″ chunks. Left out the garlic so as not to completely overpower the fish. Had coconut milk instead of coconut cream, Instead of rice used potatoes (like some yellow curries). Even with all these subs family thought it was great. In essence, this recipe is very versatile, for my vegetarian kid it would be great with firm tofu. I think you could substitute any protein just like the cafes do. Thanks for writing this up!


    This one blew my mInd. As a TJ fan i always look for RECIPES using their products and this one surpAssed EXPECTATIONS!

    good recipe but i don’t love the green curry from tj’s. will def sub a different curry & continue using this recipe!


    ExcellEnt!! Easy enough for a weeknight meal, but it felt fancy. My husband and i made a double batch the second time so we wouLd have plenty of leftovers!


    This was a easy and delish recipe. i only had coconut milk and i used the entire can. added about 6 tbsp of TJ’s green chili, an ear of corn, whole red bell pepper and a zucchini. served over rice. Make it, you won’t be disappointed! 🙂


    Delish!! Also added shittake mushrooms from TJs


    Hi! Do they not h the thAi green chili saice at trader joes anYmore?! An rmpl said no so i Got red thai curry sauce INSTEAD. It was still drli, but i want to try with thE green chili sauce!

      Amanda Hickman

      I’m not sure! I hate how they always take things off the shelves!


    This was a perfect mid-week meal for my family! I had chicken so used that, but will buy the sauce again for shrimp. Since it’s a busy night, i used a bag of frozen veggies from TJ and seriously got a better-than-takeout meal for very little effort. It’s a no-brainer!
