Caribbean swordfish & shrimp in Indian curry. Sweet & spicy flavors work so good here and when served over fresh basmati rice, it’s a meal that’s healthy yet totally divine!
Remember about the basic Indian curry I talked about yesterday? This Caribbean swordfish & shrimp in that delicious curry is like a flavor explosion in your mouth. Jerry is very good when it comes to making seasonings on the spot and he was the one who marinated this swordfish & shrimp. Sweet swordfish and spicy shrimp in a Indian basic curry sauce makes for a unique flavor combination.
Here like I said yesterday, curry can be cooked in advance and the day you decide to make this dish simply marinate the meat and cook it separately and then add hot curry over it.
Served over hot freshly made basmati rice, this swordfish shrimp recipe is a meal fit for the kings. Yesterday was my cousin’s graduation and all day we were busy getting her ready, being part of the ceremony and having a huge dinner at the end that all I wanted was to sleep till late today and do nothing! Wish it was weekend again! Well I suppose that’s my subtle way of telling you why I am little late in posting today!
But weekend or no weekend, make this!
