    My family LOVES this concept... Shrimp and potatoes! Awesome... Just some salt and pepper is really all you need if you don't like curry. I've also added sweet onions, too. This is one of my kids' favorites!

    I used red potatoes, what I had on hand, then also 2 cloves garlic, 1 diced zucchini, 2 quarter button mushrooms and 1/2 roasted hatch pepper. This was a great idea to start with, and no curry on hand so I just used a fajita seasoning mix.

    I ended up using half as much curry powder as this recipe calls for and I'm glad I did. I think 2 tsp would have been too strong.
