Easy Shrimp Curry Fondue (or Dip)

It’s only a week until National Fun with Fondue Month–thanks Louise for letting me in on the news! I am a firm believer that there is no sense waiting until the last minute to eat good food, so I made Shrimp Curry Fondue this month for a fun, quick supper.

I got this recipe in my first professional job a number of years ago.  Every year there was a department Christmas party where employees brought in amazing food, and productivity took a nose dive.  I acquired many of my favorite recipes here and always think of the cook when I recreate the dish.  Forget your 15 minutes of fame–bring the right food to the company party and it could last a lifetime!

The recipe has simple mix-and-heat directions and my biggest challenge was finding canned cream of shrimp soup.  An online search brought up a number of sources–and a mention of Walmart where I picked it up locally (and more economically).  Hooray!

I will admit that cream of shrimp soup stretches the definition of natural a bit.  But the curry that gives it its distinctive flavor and sunny gold color is a great addition to a healthy diet.  According to recent research, curry has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and may boost the immune system.  And perhaps you could dip some lightly steamed cauliflower or other veggies along with your bread…

Not a seafood fan?  The fondue also works great with cream of chicken soup and canned chicken.  No fondue pot?  Add less liquid and serve cold in a bowl with your favorite dippers.  Just call it Shrimp Curry Dip.

How’s that for a versatile recipe!

    This looks so good! I love fondue (I just made a chocolate PB fondue this weekend). I’ve never tried shrimp as a dipper, but I like that idea!

    Oh goodness Inger, I could just cry:( Never in a million years would I have thought I would miss blogging so very much and when I see a post like this, it makes me all the more saddened to think I won’t be celebrating Fondue Month this year either. Thank goodness you have kept the flame burning with this Easy Shrimp Curry Fondue!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing and thank you so very much for remembering me:)

      Oh Louise–I am so happy you saw this! I do intend to cook my way at least part way through your Pinterest Fondue board and thank you for pulling that (and so much else) together. Of course, blogging or not, you can still celebrate Fondue Month (or any other occasion) and perhaps there will be more blogging at some point in your future! Drop me a not occasionally and let me know how you are doing. I still haven’t finished knitting the hat I started–hopefully your new hobbies are faring better 😉
