  • Pat the wok dry and heat the oil. Stir-fry the onion and scallions until beginning to brown, 4 minutes. Add the ginger, garlic and curry paste. Cook 1 minute more. Stir in the shrimp and stir-fry until pink and curled, 3 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes, reserved liquid, lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook until the sauce has reduced slightly and the sweet potatoes are fork-tender, 3 minutes. Garnish with the peanuts and herbs.
