Don't remember the first time I had this as a kid, but after my mother made it once, it became my requested dish every birthday. Serve with shredded sweet coconut, chopped dry-roasted peanuts, pineapple tidbits, raisins, chopped bacon, chutney, chopped egg, or chopped tomato. Because this recipe calls for condiments of choice, every plate will be customized and taste a bit different by all at the table.

This was awesome, I hadn't had Shrimp Curry since childhood when Mom made it, she used a Cream of Shrimp soup version and I gotta say this beats it. Really easy to put together especially for me who shouldn't be anywhere near a kitchen. Thanks For Contributing Read More

It was a bit one dimensional as written. Adding some red pepper flakes and fresh chopped basil help immensely. Read More

I made this exactly as written and it was very good! I love curry and this is an easy go to recipe. I used McCormicks medium curry powder and threw in a handful of golden raisins. Next time I will add a few hot pepper flakes as suggested! Great recipe thanks! Read More

I usually make things exactly the first time but I changed a couple of things that didn t make much difference to the whole. I added 3 celery stalks and 3 carrots diced in 3/8 dice to onion when sautéing. Did everything else the same. Needed more salt and almost the original amount of curry added at the end. I will DEFINITELY leave out the sugar last time. And since we avoid rice pasta etc I served it with stir fried cauliflower rice. While eating my hubby said I needed to get more carrots because I needed to make this again later in the week. He already has dibs on the leftovers for tomorrow??. Read More

This was great with my substitutions. I added peppers and scallions to the onion and butter mixture. I used coconut milk instead of regular milk. I used vegetable broth. I used 7 tablespoons of butter since I added peppers. I used 3 tablespoons of homemade curry powder. I had no ginger. Used 1/4 cup of flour. I precooked my shrimp lobster and scallops like 2 minute before adding to curry coconut mixture. Next time I'll have coconut to garnish. Read More

Yum! I added a splash of white wine mushrooms green onions chick peas dill and cayenne. I had some extra ingredients to use up but I'm sure the original recipe is delicious as written. Great with jasmine rice. Red bell pepper would be a nice addition for more color. Read More
