Kathy's Curried Shrimp

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LifeIsGood

This is a recipe I created when I had a craving for shrimp. It's simple yet has big flavor. I typically plan on 6 large shrimp per person, but you can adjust to your own preference. I like to serve this over wild rice with a nice salad on the side. I hope you enjoy. :-)

We enjoyed this recipe for dinner tonight. It was easy to make and looked colorful and pretty on the plate. We initially used Madras curry powder in the specified amount. After tasting, DH doubled the curry using hot curry powder. We then sprinkled a little hot curry powder on the finished dish for additional flavor. We served over Texamati rice, as that was what we had on hand. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
