Impress your guests with an attractive platter of curry-sauced shrimp skewered onto grilled pineapple wedges with toothpicks. This is an excellent, not-too-hard shrimp appetizer that's perfect for special occasions. It's best served at room temperature. I used approximately 1 pound of 30-40 count shrimp. But any medium to large size shrimp will do. You need approximately 30 shrimp. The shrimp and sauce may be cooked in advance and chilled.

I'll admit I tinker with recipes quite a bit and did so with this as well. I used jumbo raw shrimp and grilled it after marinating it in a tropical-style marinade. I grilled thick slices of pineapple which worked out well. Instead of coating the shrimp with the sauce I thought I'd use it as a dipping sauce. When warm it was a great consistency, but after being chilled it was just a little too thick and the butter did try and seperate out. Instead of using curry powder, I used 1 tsp of red curry paste and that worked well. Next time I would probably reduce the butter and flour down to 2 T butter and 1 T flour in order thicken it less vs. the stick of butter and 1/4 cup of flour that the recipe calls for.

I actually tried this sauce with grilled chicken. I was looking for a curry sauce that was quick and not a million steps. That it was, but I found it thick and bland. I added garlic, ginger and crushed red peppers and that helped. I would agree that I wouldn't add as much butter and flour next time to make it less thick. I would try this recipe again as I think the base of it is good for a simple curry sauce.. Maybe with the shrimp it has a much better affect.

I made this to take to a Memorial Day party. The plate was empty in no time. Although I had my reservations about how it turned out, I got nothing but compliments. It makes a lot of curry sauce, next time I would probably use 2+ lbs of shrimp.
