Curry Shrimp

I created this Indian-style shrimp when we were entertaining some friends, one of our favorite things to do. It works on the stovetop or the grill. —Shana Conradt, Appleton, Wisconsin

    I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. The yogurt really makes the curry flavor linger on your tongue. Quick and easy, I've made this twice already and am making it again tonight.

    was eagerly anticipating this recipe, as I have tried many curry recipes and couldn't find one I liked. I was sorely disappointed. I increased the curry powder to almost triple the called for 1 teaspoon and still couldn't taste any curry. Couldn't find any cilantro after adding an extra tablespoon. Not really happy that I wasted a pound of shrimp on this recipe. I even let the dish set for 10 minutes in hopes of the curry getting a chance to cure and build a flavor. I will try this one more time, and use chicken or pork. But not holding out much hope.

    The sauce is really flavorful. This recipe is a good one for entertaining, since it's extremely quick but looks fancy enough to impress your guests.
