Cauliflower Shrimp Curry

Similar to a stir fry. A thrown together recipe of healthy ingredients with an interesting colour.

This particular recipe was a sort of dump everything together before it goes off and see what happens kind of recipe. It’s like a paleo Chinese stir fry. I have to say before you make it that it has a kind of fluorescent shade of green! My son, Taran, thought this was an awesome colour! That really isn’t a recommendation though as he is three and will currently say anything for a monster truck sticker. He refused to try and taste it but the colour was a definite hit. It intrigued my husband enough who stole some and thought the recipe was worth keeping.
