Expert Tips

Shrimp isn’t only for special occasions; it’s a lean shellfish to use any time in stir-fries, pastas, egg dished and casseroles. Keep frozen shrimp in a sealed package in the freezer for up to two months. Remove only the amount you need for a recipe and thaw it as directed on the package.

Spoon this curry over a bed of rice on a decorative oblong china platter. Pass the platter family-style, or use it as part of a buffet.

Pass a bowl filled with chutney or place a small bowl of chutney at each place setting. For dessert, serve Raspberry-Topped Low Fat Cheesecake.
