Oh no! You poor thing, trying to make a nice meal for you and your husband! I’m sorry this happened, but I’m glad that you didn’t find out about the shrimp flakes the hard way! That would have been so much worse. Good luck on your interview!

I am glad you caught it in time. Sorry to hear about that though!

@KatNYC2011: Perhaps ask them when you do go out.  Always better to be safe than sorry! =)

Oh hun, I hope you can look back on this and laugh.  And thankfully you checked the ingredients before you ended up in the hospital!  Good luck on your interview tomorrow. =)

Oh my! I’m sorry you didn’t get to eat your meal. However, you just may have saved me- I have to buy a curry powder or paste today for a soup I’m making for my party. It’s supposed to be vegan for two of my guests- I never would have checked if not for this post, so thanks!

I hope your interview goes well!

I’m allergic to shrimp, and it’s commonly used in curry pastes.  It’s not just a British vs. American thing.  A chef at a thai restaurant told me that here, and said that many restaurants getted it shipped in and they aren’t 100% sure what’s in it.  Between my fish and shrimp allergy there wasn’t much on the menu I could eat, but luckily the waiter sent the chef out so he could alter some dishes for me.

Check out Indian curries, they are usually safe because so many Indians are vegetarian.

Ugh – I hate when my great dinner plans get thwarted for some unforeseeable reason!

Have you tried making your own curry paste? I’ve done it a ton of times (homemade green curry and noodles was the first dish I ever cooked for Darling Husband when we were dating!)and it’s pretty easy and you can ensure that all the ingredients are safe for you to eat. I like making it in large quantities so that I can freeze the leftover paste in icecube trays and only have to go through the steps to make the paste every few times I make a Thai curry.
