This is both delicious and easy. It is wonderfully warm but not very spicy. We serve it with organic brown rice and my roasted Brussels sprouts. It is fun to eat as a whole meal-in-a-bowl out of my handmade pottery.
1. Keep your peanut oil in the refrigerator; there it will not go rancid and will be good for a long time.
2. I love this recipe even though I don’t generally like coconut. So try it even if you are like me and would never order coconut ice cream, or always pass on that coconut cake other people rave about.
3. I recommend the frozen Argentinean shrimp from Trader Joe’s. We like their texture better.

Put the oil, onion and garlic in a large pan and cook on medium for a few minutes. Add the curry powder and jalapeño and cook for another few minutes.
