Simple Shrimp and Broccoli Curry

Happy New Year.

I'm not sure when I became Martha freakin' Whatshername but I'm about to put another recipe up on my blog.

I made this tonight for the second time and it was just as easy and yummy as the first time. I cheat all the way through. So, if you are a real chef (or fancy yourself to be one) you probably don't want to read any further.  This takes about 20 minutes (maybe a little bit less) to make so is great in a pinch or while also trying to wrangle kids, do the laundry, and/or all the other things we all have to do at exactly the same time we need to prepare food.

I am listing the ingredients as I find them. Substitute any and all with what you can find at your local store.

2--12 oz boxes of Seapak frozen shrimp scampi (or other frozen shrimp)
1--12 oz jar Seeds of Change Madras simmer sauce (or other curry sauce)
1--12 oz steamer bag frozen broccoli florets 
cooked rice (again, I cheated and used Minute Rice ready to serve cups)
1 or 2 packages fresh Naan bread

In large skillet cook frozen shrimp scampi according to package directions. At the same time, cook the bag of broccoli according to package directions (5 min on high). Pre-heat the oven to 400 if you want to warm the bread. Once the butter sauce that was coating the shrimp has all melted, pour off most of it (about 3/4). Dump the whole jar of curry sauce in with the shrimp. Stir. If you are heating the bread, place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with a little water. Watch the shrimp curl up into little circles of white goodness. Stir occasionally or in whatever manner makes you happy. Being mindful of the steam and it's ability to burn the crap out of you, open and pour the bag of broccoli in with the shrimp and sauce. Stir. Microwave the rice according to package directions (1 min ea on high). Turn everything off. Take the bread out of the oven. Serve. Particularly good with a cold beer.

It really is that simple.

Hope you enjoy.
