Shrimp is a really great protein to work with as it easily takes on other flavours and you can generally get it for pretty cheap.

Not mention that it cooks up pretty quick!

I love the creamy curry sauce that comes together in this dish thanks to coconut milk and spices. The tangy sweetness of the pineapple adds a whole other dimension that is just incredible.

We typically serve curry in our household with just plain parboiled or basmati rice. Personally I love a basmati cooked in coconut milk paired with a tasty curry.

You would also serve it with just some warmed up naan bread.

What kind of Pan do you Cook Curry in?

The ideal pan for cooking a good curry is a wok, or Kadhai.

A kadhai is similar in shape to a wok, though with a wider bottom surface area and steeper sides.

If you already have a wok, feel free to use that instead of a Kadhai.

About the Ingredients for Shrimp Curry

Oil – I use plain old vegetable oil but any neutral flavoured oil is fine.

Curry – I usually use either a curry powder mix or yellow curry paste. Curry powder is much more inexpensive.

Ginger – Use fresh ginger, grated. You can use ground ginger in a pinch.

Garlic – Use fresh garlic, minced. You could also use garlic powder if necessary but fresh is better.

Shrimp – Use raw shrimp of your preference. It’s easier if you buy peeled, deveined shrimp.

Bell Pepper – You can use any kind of bell pepper you like. I prefer red pepper personally, the sweetness of it goes so well with the creamy curry sauce.

Onion – Just use a plain old yellow onion.

Pineapple – Canned pineapple is best here because you want both the juice and the fruit itself. I prefer chunks but tidbits work well too.

Coconut milk – Go for the best quality coconut milk you can find. If you can get some without guar gum, that is the best tasting in my opinion.

  1. I’m not a seafood person but dang this makes me rethink that! My husband loves shrimp, I pinned the recipe to save for him.. thanks so very much & Happy Mother’s Day!

  2. Being from Florida we eat a lot of shrimp. I’m always on the lookout for a new recipe and this looks terrific! Thanks for sharing. I’m a new follower.

  3. Great Recipe and simple too! I made this with some left over chopped zucchini and eggplant instead because I didn’t have a pepper on hand, and it turned out great! Zucchini and eggplant do take a bit longer to cook though.

  4. This looks so delicious, I have never made curry before, I can’t wait to give it a try. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
