The last thing we want to come back home on a strenuous Monday night and stress our brains on is ‘what’s cooking for dinner?’ If you are one of us who is bored of regular dinner meals, we got you sorted with a scrumptious recipe of chilli shrimps which take only 30 minutes to whip up and serves two.
We are currently on a seafood diet – we see food and eat it. When Forrest Gump said, “Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it,” we rooted for it.
So, move over regular chilli paneer or chilli chicken and try these drool-worthy chilli shrimps which will keep you coming back for more. Check out their lip-smacking recipe below.
