    I made this last night and it was fabulous!
    I didn’t have any curry so I substituted coriander, smoked paprika and cumin which worked very well.
    Thank you so much!

    Made this tonight. It was a major hit! I used ghee instead of butter or olive oil and I garnished with the pico and green onion. It turned out creamy and amazing! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    We regularly eat shrimp curry here at our house. We use yellow peppers and a ton of spinach. I can’t wait to try some of the add in’s you suggested. We eat ours with sweet potatoes on the side.
