Curry Cabbage Slaw with Sauteed Curry Shrimp

Curry Cabbage Slaw with Curry ShrimpIt was midweek and we needed something for lunch.  It was late in the day and I had a craving for shrimp. I was wondering if there was a way I could make some sort of shrimp and veggie salad.

Light enough for lunch but hefty enough to keep you full and satisfied for the rest of the day.

I’ve made a cabbage and radish slaw as a topper for fish tacos.  So I wondered if I could make a curry based slaw?  Full of curry spice but no heavy sauces to weight down the dish.

Crunchy cabbage and carrot slaw with curry topped with some curry spiced shrimp turned out to be one of the best dishes I’ve made recently.

Light enough for a late lunch but substantial enough that you can have this for dinner on a warm evening.

Andrea’s Curry Cabbage Slaw with Sauteed Curry Shrimp

For the Slaw:

  • 1/2 of a small to medium head of cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 Large Carrots, shredded
  • 1 handful of cilantro, chopped
  • 4 Green Onions, chopped, white and green parts
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • 1TBSP Light Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Curry Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cane Sugar

In a large mixing bowl, add in the cabbage, carrots, and green onions.  In a small mixing bowl add the remaining ingredients and whisk until the sugar is dissolved.  Pour dressing over the veggies and toss until everything is coated.  Set aside for at least half an hour before serving.  Gently stirring every few minutes.

For the shrimp:

  • 16 Raw EZ Peel Shrimp, remove also the tail
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Curry
  • 1/2 tsp Light Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2TBSP Light Olive Oil for sauteeing

In a medium mixing bowl, add all ingredients except for the 1/2TBSP olive oil, and gently toss together.  Heat the 1/2 TBSP of oil over medium heat and then add the shrimp in.  Cook shrimp about 2 minutes on each side and remove from heat.

Scoop out large spoonfuls of the slaw onto a plate and then top with the shrimp.  Serve and enjoy!

This makes two large servings with a little bit of slaw leftover.

Curry Cabbage Slaw with Curry ShrimpI’m not sure if Scott and I even talked with each other the entire time we were eating this dish!  It hit the spot perfectly and made for a great late lunch.

I think some extra chopped cilantro and maybe some crushed peanuts on top would be great additions and kick the dish up a little bit.

Have fun guys and remember, always play with your food!  Enjoy!
