Directions

Bring the Trinidadian shrimp mixture to room temperature; this will take about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, cut its shrimp, green bell pepper, tomato and onions into chunks; reserve its sauce.

Heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok over high heat until a bead of water tossed in vaporizes within 1 to 2 seconds of contact. Swirl in the oil to coat, then add the scallions and stir-fry for 10 seconds or until the light-green parts of the scallions are bright green. Add the rice and curry powder; stir-fry for 1 minute or until the rice is broken up and the curry powder is well incorporated.

Add the chopped shrimp mixture and the salt; stir-fry for 1 minute or until heated through. Stir in the reserved sauce.

Transfer to a plate; sprinkle with additional chopped scallions, if desired.
