How to cook string beans with shrimp using a technique used in the Caribbean for cooking curry dishes. Caribbean cookbook author and food personality Chris De La Rosa shares his take on cooking curry string beans with shrimp.

Providing you use a gluten free curry powder (some curry powder has flour added), this recipe can be considered gluten free.

For this curry string beans with shrimp you’ll need…

1 lb shrimp
1 teaspoon Caribbean green seasoning
1 teaspoon veg oil (marinating the shrimp)
1 tablespoon veg oil
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup diced bell pepper

3 cloves garlic
1/2 medium onion
1 heaping tablespoon curry powder
2 lbs string beans (any type of green beans)
1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust accordingly)
