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 the 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 2 teaspoons 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 peppers, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and chopped ginger; season with salt and pepper.
