shredded cheese

lettuce or spinach (we used spinach)

hot sauce

finely diced or thinly sliced radishes

lime juice


1. Prepare the salsa: Slice, dice, and mix. Crush if you want. (This recipe makes a lot, so expect leftovers.)

 2. Prepare the shrimp: In a large bowl, toss the shrimp with the curry powder and barbecue sauce and let it marinate for about 30 minutes. 

 3. Heat a large saute pan over medium temperature. 

 4. Add the olive oil to the pan and heat for about one minute.
