Tandoori Shrimp Recipe

04.04.12 by Jackie

Tandoori shrimp is a seafood dish fit for a feast. The preparation isn't all that complicated; the marinade is the same as for the similarly-named chicken dish. It consists of ginger garlic paste, yogurt, garam masala, turmeric and chili powder. I also add paprika so the color is vibrant without being too spicy. Once the marinade is complete, you can use it for meat, fish or even paneer cheese; you name it. Tandoori paste is a true culinary chameleon.

I made this dish 'way back during the summer and completely forgot to share the recipe. I've been working on an exciting photo project these days (I'll tell you the good news soon!) and found this jumbo shrimp photograph in my image organizer as I was editing my previous food photography work. We made it for a barbecue. It was a very relaxing day and I really didn't want to slave in the kitchen. I just placed the colossal  shrimp in the marinade and my husband's cousin was in charge of grilling. Of course, you don't need to wait for warmer days; simply use a griddle pan and I promise your guests will definitely be in for a treat.
