Pumpkin Shrimp and Scallop Curry Recipe

Pumpkin Shrimp and Scallop Curry Recipe, The ideal #comfortfood just the right hint of spice, flavorful pumpkin and shrimp, Save a Turkey, eat shrimp
Hola Amigos! I'm sharing with you today, my family's October 30th tradition. It's started 6 years when we were trying to have dinner on Halloween night  after my oldest was done with the candy collecting palooza around  the neighborhood. Dinner kept getting interrupted by kids ringing the doorbell for more candy even when bowls were left on the porch for them to grab. They just wanted to keep going collecting with my son which was O.K but I like my food hot! lol ...So we decided to have our Halloween dinner the night before Halloween.
Pumpkin Shrimp and Scallop Curry Recipe, Savory Pumpkin curry is the perfect addition to your Fall #comfortfood line up. Shirmp and scallops bring a nice exotic but affordable touch to this dish. #Fall #curry

We also carve our pumpkins,well just my husband and little one now since I'm busy with dinner, eat Skull Sugar cookies, Pan de Muerto we get at Mexican Town in the city and watch a scary kid friendly movie afterwards.

The main dish always consists of some sort of seafood dish. To me anything seafood means abundance. I grew up with tons of it and we have it at home at least once or twice a week, so why not for Halloween to match the abundance of candy and fun!

This year I've incorporated some pumpkin on this dish to please my husband who unlike me, loves pumpkin. I had to do some research since I'm not familiar with the use of pumpkin in dishes,  found this recipe online here and  tweaked it my way, leaving a few things out and adding some in.

It's delicious and rich! Just the way I like my curry! and to me the most important thing...I can't taste the pumpkin! I know it's there but i can't taste it! that is a win win to me! Will make it again for sure!
It's a bit spicy and with a beautiful orange color, making it perfect for those cold Fall nights!
Pumpkin Shrimp and Scallop Curry Recipe. Because there is so much to pumpkins than pie! This savory dish rich in flavors and textures is the perfect comfort food for Fall cold days! Warm yourself up from the inside out with this colorful and delicious dish, #comfortfood #Fall #curry
