What type of curry powder should I use?

Curry powder is a blend of various spices. You can use store bought curry or make your own at home.

What other types of protein can be used in curry?

You can get creative as you like here. Curry generally uses meat, fish, poultry, or shellfish. You can also make an amazing vegetarian curry using your favorite veggies.

What size shrimp do I use for shrimp curry?

You can use any size shrimp you like. I like to use the larger size shrimp and cut it up. You can also opt to cook the shrimp with the shells on if you’d like, but preparing it ahead of time makes it easier for my children to eat this dish without needing extra help. You do you.

What goes well with shrimp curry?

My favorite is always good, old sticky white rice. You can also serve it with a fresh green salad, mixed veggies, couscous, or with naan bread for dipping.

How to store leftover shrimp curry?

Once curry has completely cooled you can place in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or freeze for 3-6 months. When ready to eat you can reheat in the microwave, on the stove, or defrost at room temperature for a few hours.
