Delicata squash is a small oblong squash that has pale yellow skin with dark green stripes. It's sweet and smooth enough to eat plain, but the flavor really pops with this medley of shrimp and veggies. This recipe was a clean-out-my-freezer concoction that turned out to be tasty. For a light colorful meal, serve with a salad of mixed baby greens, cucumber, and toasted pine nuts.

This is really good. The curry really works with the squash and all of the ingredients together are quite tasty. I used 1/2 pound do shrimp which is just slightly more than the 3/4 c than the recipe calls for. I also used Tuscan herb olive oil which added to the flavor. Definitely give it a try! Read More

This was fantastic! I did a couple of changes- baked the squash in the oven because I had it on for something else. Also I didn't have shrimp so I left it off. I will definitely make this again!! Read More

I loved this recipe that uses my favorite squash! I liked how the curry worked so well with the squash and shrimp. I thought it needed a bit of creaminess to distribute the flavors, so added about 2-3 tbs sour cream once the veggies and shrimp were off the heat. Read More
