Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Easy Slow Cooker Shrimp Curry
Looking forward to getting a jump on all the wonderful things the coming year has in store, including lots of easy and healthy Weight Watchers friendly crock pot recipes.
Speaking of which…
I adapted this recipe for easy slow cooker shrimp curry from the one for “Hurry Curry” in the The I Hate to Cook Book, a fun read dating back to 1960 filled with all kinds of easy retro recipes.
Don’t confuse this easy slow cooker shrimp curry with anything closely resembling real Indian or Thai curry!
But that doesn’t make it any less tasty.
The Skinny on Slow Cooker Shrimp Curry
Creamy and comforting, it’s just the kind of recipe I was looking for late Saturday afternoon as I pondered what I could make in the slow cooker that wouldn’t require much time or effort.
I also needed a way to use up what remained from Christmas Eve’s ginormous (think Costco-size) shrimp cocktail platter.
As luck would have it, I even had the required can of cream of shrimp soup in the cupboard.
I can almost guarantee that Rod will love any retro recipe I make, especially if it involves a creamy sauce.
This easy slow cooker shrimp curry served over rice was no exception. He went back for seconds. A sure sign of a winner 🙂
According to my calculations, each serving of this easy shrimp curry has about 129 calories and 3* Weight Watchers PointsPlus.
