One thing I would like to clarify is in Indian cooking we always use red chilli powder, which is cayenne pepper. If you ever see a recipe with red chilli powder DON"T use the chilli powder you find in your regular grocery store. Use cayenne pepper or in Indian grocery stores it is labelled red chilli powder. In most of my recipes I use the term cayenne pepper to avoid any confusion.
Mummy's Indian Spiced Shrimp
1 packet frozen shrimp (900 g, 31-40 per pound), defrosted, shell and vein removed
1 tbsp adrak laysan (ginger garlic paste)
1/2 tsp red chilli powder/ cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp lemon juice
salt to taste
2-3 tbsp minced fresh cilantro
Marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes in the ingredients above.
Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Place in a wok and cook until cooked through. While they were in the wok we brushed them with some oil. Serve hot!
