Pumpkin Seafood Curry #Pumpkin Week #FishFridayFoodies

This post is sponsored in conjunction with PumpkinWeek . I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the PumpkinWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Beautiful tender shrimp and chunks of white fish cooked up  in a curried pumpkin sauce.  This delicious stew can be on your table in less than an hour.  Perfect for your next Fish Friday meal.

Please join me today as I celebrate the final day of Pumpkin Week with the Fish Friday Foodies team.......

POOF....just like that it is the last day of Pumpkin Week.  It has been quite the ride with tons of amazing recipes being shared each day.  This is also the last day to enter to win one of three great prize packages from our sponsors.  You can head over to my Welcome Post to learn more about our sponsors, see what they are raffling and enter into the contest.

I want to give one more HUGE shout-out to our host, Terri of Love and Confections, and her co-host, Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures.  These events are a lot of work and I appreciate all they do for us.

Today Pumpkin is sharing the spotlight with Shrimp and some Pickerel (aka Walleye) in a hearty, spicy stew that includes diced pumpkin and pumpkin puree.

I decided to share this recipe because today is also the third Friday of the month.  Each month on the third Friday, I and some of my blogging friends, post a Fish/Seafood recipe based on a theme chosen by one of our members.  This month my friend Cam of Culinary Adventures with Camilla asked us to share fish/seafood stews.

Let's take a look at what stews the others are sharing.  Should you be interested in joining us each month just leave a comment on the bottom of this post with your blog name and I will be happy to add you to our group.

This recipe that I'm sharing with you today is just a guideline.  You can use any seafood or fish that you like or have on hand.  Shrimp is always in my freezer and my friends, John and Kirsten, had gifted us with some fresh Pickerel that they had caught while fishing off of their dock.  I used mild curry because my husband is spice sensitive but you can use medium or hot curry if that's what you like.
