This is an interesting version of Curried Shrimp. It is a rich sauce, but rather understated as curries go, and it very nicely showcases the delicate flavor of prime shrimp. Curried Shrimp is also a quick recipe to do, and is a natural for the tableside chafing dish.

This Curried Shrimp recipe is for two, but can easily be expanded for any number of diners.

  • 1 qt. water
  • 1/4 cp. celery top
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Tsp. whole black peppercorns
  • Couple hot, dry red chiles
  • Small wad of parsely

Simmer for a few minutes and add:
  • 3/4 lb. large shrimp with heads off but unshelled
Simmer five minutes, drain, peel and reserve.

  • 2 Tbl. Butter
Melt in frying pan or chafing dish, add:
  • 1/2 cp. thin slice onions
  • 1/2 cp. thin sliced green pepper

Saute gently for a couple minutes, add:
  • 2 tsp. curry powder

Saute a bit more, add:
  • Splash of white wine

When nearly dry, add
  • 1 cp. sour creme

Bring to simmer, add:
  • The reserved shrimp
  • A bit of salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbl pimento
