How long to "slow-cook" shrimp?

elustaz | May 10, 2014 09:42 AM

I've got a craving to try making my favorite vindaloo recipe with shrimp instead of chicken or pork. In the ordinary recipe, I prep the onions, garlic, and spices in the pan, toss the meat in the mixture, bring it to a boil for a few minutes, and then lower it to a simmer for an hour.

How long should I cook the shrimp, though? Surely an hour is too much, even at a low simmer. Is there some standard of conversion in cooking times for such things?
