    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 23 to 25 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice lengthwise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Roughly chop the cashews.

    Meanwhile, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails. Place in a bowl; season with, salt, pepper, and the curry powder. Toss to coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the seasoned shrimp, sliced pepper, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and chopped ginger; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the shrimp are slightly opaque.
