Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"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...

Omit the flour and use coconut milk instead of milk/stock. Added garlic with the onions, lime instead of lemon and basil at the end! Great quick curry!!
