In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Sauté onion and garlic in butter over low heat until soft. Stir in flour, curry powder and ginger. Add broth and milk slowly, and cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add shrimp and lemon juice and continue cooking until shrimp are heated through. Do not allow it to boil. Serve over hot rice.

Shrimp are crustaceans and are closely related to barnacles and crabs, but did you know they are distantly related to centipedes, spiders, and insects?  They all belong to the Phylum Arthropoda, which means they have jointed appendages. Learn more about shrimp research shared in our Hook, Line & Science blog.
