Last week my mother-in-law who is Trinidadian prepared the most delicious curried shrimp. Her brother brought her some very good size shrimp, and she prepared them in curry.
I really love shrimp and I am always available to try any new recipe and taste. I soon as she came home with the shrimp I tasted one, and wow!!! heaven... It was delicious. But it was too little bit :(
I saved some of the curried shrimp to take the picture, my husband eat most of them and I kept the recipe not only for me but for you all. I most say my mother-in-law cooks very well and if I trust someone regarding to local food, she is the person.
I hope you can enjoy this recipe as I enjoyed eating my shrimps...
