With Valentine’s Day approaching, menu planning for love or libido are of the essence. My attitude is to make sure the meal preparation is easy yet memorable. This easy appetizer uses curry, a bit of salt, rough ground garam masala spice, and olive oil to sear jumbo, wild shrimp. The sauce is made from equal parts The Gracious Gourmet’s Tropical Fruit Spread (you can use mango chutney or a tropical jam to substitute), mayonnaise and grainy mustard. I have garnished with basil to enhance this aphrodisiac Amuse-bouche or starter which literally means mouth teaser in French. Let this be your opening to a thoroughly romantic meal.
