Sauteed Shrimp with Curried Banana Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by Ambervim

Wow, 12 years for the first review. This is good. For me the sauce it too thick. Easily cured by less banana or more stock....maybe even addition of sherry or wine. I think the recipe intends 1/2 cup NOT 1/2 teaspoon of chopped apples. Could be made with or without the apples. I happened to have lobster stock and used it. I used a stick blender in the pan so that was simple. Oops, I forgot the ginger which would have added a good note. What is nice is the sauce is done ahead and the rice is held in your rice cooker. So, if you have company over it is only 3-5 minutes in front of the stove to complete the dish.
