Marinade shrimps for 10 minutes in Masala curry powder and season with salt and cracked black pepper.

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the extra virgin olive oil and butter. Once butter is melted, add the red chili flakes first, then followed by the garlic and saute for 2 mins until soft and fragrant. Add the chopped green onions and saute for another 2 mins.

Add the shrimps and immediately toss in sauteed aromatics until shrimps turn pink and curl-up (note: shrimps cook fast, make sure not to overcook them) about 2 minutes (over medium-high heat) then remove from heat.

Place shrimps on top of cut-out toasts and garnish with chopped chives and sprinkle red chili flakes (optional).

Serve warm.
