Every month or so, one of my circle of friends hosts a "What A Crock" get-together, where we sign up to bring ingredients, prepare them together, divvy them up between our slow cookers, and we leave with dinner ready to go.  The last time I hosted "What A Crock," we made a coconut curry chicken which was PHENOMENAL... and made me think, "Hmm, this is calling for some shrimp!"




Coconut Curry Shrimp

5-6 large carrots, peeled & sliced
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
2 bell peppers, any color, roughly chopped
1 16.5 oz can light coconut milk
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 T curry powder
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp garam masala (feel free to make your own garam masala if there's no Indian grocery near you)
Salt & pepper to taste
1 lb. raw shrimp of your favorite size, peeled & deveined

Place sliced carrots in the bottom of your slow cooker.  Place all remaining ingredients except shrimp in a food processor and chop to process until smooth.  Pour over carrot slices.  Cook in your slow cooker on high 2-3 hours or low 3-4 hours.  In last hour of cooking, add shrimp to slow cooker and stir until they're all covered in sauce.  Serve with rice.

Next time, I might make this with cauliflower rice for the extra vegetable matter.  Yum-tastic!
