COCONUT CURRIED SHRIMP



COCONUT CURRIED SHRIMP
I was very hungry one day and didn’t have the patience to look up a recipe for the beautiful, large, precooked shrimp that I had in the freezer!  I grabbed a can of coconut milk in the pantry and the rest is history.  This was a wonderful, flavorful meal and quite hearty.

1.5 lbs large frozen shrimp, (0.68 kg)
  precooked and with tails on
3 tbsp light-tasting olive oil (45 mL)
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
2 tsp minced garlic (10 mL)
2 tbsp mild curry powder (30 mL)
1/4 tsp seasoning salt (1 mL)
1/4 tsp No Salt (1 mL)
3/4 cup coconut milk (175 mL)
2 tbsp raisins, optional (30 mL)

In colander and under running, cold water, thaw shrimp.  Drain and remove tails from shrimp.  Set aside.

In large saucepan, heat oil and add onion.  Stir fry onion until getting soft and add the garlic.  Stir fry until onion is tender.  Stir in curry powder, seasoning salt and No Salt.  Add coconut milk gradually, while stirring.  Add raisins if using. Bring to the boil.  Add shrimp and while stirring cook until heated through.  Serve over Cauli-FriedRice, if desired.
