This was SO good. I must admit I had to leave the scallops out, as my fiance is not a fan, but its all the same...the curry was fabulous. I wasnt sure where to add the curry powder as you mention adding it to the shells, onion and garlic, and then again with the shrimp, so I just used it when I cooked the shrimp, and then added the shrimp to the sauce, and then continued to add a bit more spice to our tastes :) The sauce is fabulous.. just the perfect consistency! Thanks so much for this recipe! :) Hope you like the photo!

Pretty good!! I didn't have any scallops and had only 20 shrimp. So I substituted a large fish fillet for the scallops. I cut up the fish in small pieces. It was good. Next time I think I will add a little more curry.
