Add mayonaise and stir until coated. If using curry paste mix some with the mayo to mix evenly.
If using curry powder add 1-2 tsp. stir, taste adjust. Remember the curry flavours will develop in the fridge.
Sometimes I use 1 teaspoon of yellow Thai curry paste, and 1 teaspoon sweet yellow curry powder
Add the chopped onion and sliced olives. Stir. Add freshly ground pepper. I rarely add salt as the mayo and shrimp and olives add enough saltiness for us.
I scoup up this macaroni shrimp salad on washed and dry butter lettuce leaves and arrange on a large platter.
Enjoy this easy Summer meal, or serve as a side dish, perfect for buffet parties, but keep on ice.
