To the empty wok add the vegetables (mushrooms - carrots) and stir fry for 3 minutes. Add to bowl with the shrimp and set aside.
Add the rest of the ingredients (coconut cream - cilantro) and cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. When red beds start to form on top of the coconut cream and all of the shrimp and vegetables to the wok; stir to coat and simmer for 3 minutes.
