I hope you are all doing well and having a wonderful start to your week. I know I shared on Instagram that my mom was helping me recipe test a new shrimp marinade and I think I found something we finally love.
I originally started making this recipe after buying my friend Beth’s cookbook and using her genius hack for the cauliflower grits. She adds crumbled goat cheese to the Trader Joe’s frozen cauliflower mashed potatoes and they are perfection!
The recipe is quick, easy and healthy so I always find myself coming back to it but wishing my shrimp had a little more kick to it. I make sure to buy the frozen Red Argentinian raw shrimp from Trader Joe’s because it’s my favorite but any raw shrimp will do. Also be sure that your pan is sizzling hot before you throw the shrimp on!
This masala can be used on so many things! Fish and veggies (especially love it on eggplant) are both great and you can store it in the fridge or freezer to use anytime you need!
Shrimp Masala Marinade
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Turmeric
4 tsp Salt
2 tbsp White Vinegar
Mix all together
keep paste in the refrigerator/freezer and use it when you want!
If marinating shrimp right away, keep them in the fridge for 2-4 hours after coating. I then just toss it over the cauliflower mash and top with hot sauce or Sriracha ranch!
Let me know if you try it out and I hope you enjoy!
