Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 5 tsp curry powder
  • 4-5 cups chicken broth

To make

Instructions

Place a medium-size pot over medium-high heat. Add butter, melt and add onion. Cook and stir for 5-10 minutes or until onions begin to soften. Add curry and stir 30 seconds. Add broth, peas and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until peas are very tender, about 15 minutes. Season to taste. Puree in small batches in a blender or food processor (use caution when pureeing hot liquids). Return to pot and add shrimp. Bring back up to temperature, stirring frequently until shrimp are heated through completely; about 3-5 minutes.
