For my little Valentine’s Day Soirée, we went with an Asian theme. Shrimp Tandoori was the main dish and it was quite tasty if you ask me. It’s pretty easy too!
1 1/2lbs peeled and deveined shrimp
1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
1 tablespoon fresh mixed garlic
1 cup Greek yogurt
Fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon garam masala
Kosher salt and black pepper
Rinse the shrimp.
Peel the garlic and ginger.
All minced up.
In a large mixing bowl combine shrimp with ginger and garlic. Squeeze in fresh lime juice.
Add in the Greek yogurt.
Add a tablespoon of garam masala.
Add the kosher salt.
Fresh black pepper.
Mix all of the together and let it marinate in the fridge for an hour.
Ok, now we are ready to cook!
Put a tablespoon or two of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the shrimp and cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until shrimp become a pink color.
Yumm! I served my shrimp tandoori with yellow rice and cilantro-coconut chutney (recipe coming soon!).
