Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
This simple weeknight curry is packed with vegetables and comes together fast.
Smarts: A version of this curry was featured way back in 2013. We've updated the recipe and reduced the prep time by using canned tomatoes instead of fresh.


Shrimp Curry:
  • Cauliflower florets - 12 oz
  • Butter - 1 Tbsp
  • Shrimp, peeled and deveined - 1 1/2 lbs
  • Onions, medium and red - 1/2 , diced
  • Garlic - 4 cloves , chopped
  • Ginger - 2 tsp , grated
  • Jalapenos - 1 , diced
  • Oil, cooking - 2 Tbsp
  • Tomatoes, diced (28 oz / 794 g) - 1 can
  • Curry powder, mild - 1 Tbsp
  • Spinach, baby - 2 cups
  • Cilantro leaves - 1/4 cup , chopped
  • Lemon juice - 1 tsp


  1. Cauliflower rice - Pulse florets in a food processor until broken up into ‘rice’-sized bits. Cook rice in one of two ways: 1) Microwave for 4 to 5 minutes and then fold in butter. Season with some salt and pepper; or 2) Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add butter. Saute cauliflower in heated butter for ~5 minutes, until tender but still crunchy. Season to taste with some salt and pepper. Watch this video for the full how-to on cauliflower rice. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
  2. Shrimp - Defrost, rinse, and dry.
  3. Onions / Garlic / Ginger / Jalapenos - Prep as directed and combine. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
