This is delicious and easy enough for me to do after work when I get a craving for it. Be sure to serve with plenty of steamed rice to soak up the sauce. Recipe from Sam Choy's Sampler.

This was delicious, I had some cooked shrimp in the freezer, so I made the sauce and threw the shrimp in for the last 5 mins cooking time.I also threw in a handful of frozen peas at the same time.Thanks for a great recipe
My fiance requested Shrimp Curry for dinner, so I went out in search of a quicker recipe for shrimp curry. Through my time here at zaar, Ive noticed that you(heyjude) and I have similar tastes, so when I found your recipe, I was very excited to try it! My apartment smelled so wonderful while making this!!! I must admit I used a bit more curry, but that is just to our tastes. As chia said, the sauce is wonderful. I served this with coconut rice w/ parsley. Unfortunately I didnt have any snap peas, so I had to make it without, but that made no difference Im sure!!!!
i used sea scallops too, 12 large ones. this was great, i loved the sauce! we served this over jasmine rice, great quick dinner
