I know a lot of people who stay away from seafood because of the cleaning involved – well thanks to my mom who showed me how to clean all kinds of fish, shrimp and crab. I remember those days when we would go to the fish market in Kuwait and buy crabs and shrimp and I would clean and de-vein these delicious sea-creatures while trying to find out if it was girl or boy crab/shrimp LOL. My mom had an explanation back then, which I am not sure if she remembers, cause I don’t! To go along with that, she also makes the best fish / shrimp and crab curries, so if you stop over in Kuwait and its seafood season, ask her for a meal ….
- Shrimp – de-veined and washed
- Ginger and Garlic Paste (Tsp each)
- Green Chillies
- Lemon Juice
- Tumeric powder – a pinch
- Coriander powder
- Chilli powder
- Coconut Milk
Heat the oil in a pan, and add in the chopped onions and cook until they become soft. Next add the ginger and garlic paste, green chillies and the masalas.
After a few minutes, add the tomatoes and the coconut milk and bring to a boil. Add the shrimp and cilantro and cook until the shrimp is done. The color of the shrimp changes when done. Add the lemon juice (I used half a lemon), give a quick stir and you are done!
