Curry Shrimp with Peas


One of my favorite combinations is shrimp with peas, infused with crispy ginger and garlic and spiced with a light dusting of curry powder. Have this colorful dish as is, served as an appetizer, or make it more substantial served over rice, Japanese buckwheat noodles or angel hair pasta.
