This Indian-spiced shrimp is wonderful and so easy to put together. Wish I had made a double-batch. : ) I am so thankful that I have access to plenty of fresh wild-caught shrimp where I live as I will be making this dish often. Served this dish with and a green salad. Made for the Best of 2014 tag game.
