Foodie Friday no. 2 – Shrimp Tikka Masala

This is a recipe I got from a yachting magazine recently:

Shrimp Tikka Masala

Serves 4 people

You will need:

1 lb peeled shrimp (raw)

1 tp cumin

1 tp turmeric

1/2 tp Korean pepper (but you can use Tobasco to taste)

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

1 T tomato paste

1 garlic clove (chopped)

salt, pepper

1/4 cup melted butter

1 tp chopped ginger


Peel the shrimp, place in a bowl. Add yogurt and spices (you can substitute the cumin and turmeric for 2 tp curry powder if you like) and garlic and ginger. Season to taste and add tomato paste.  Add melted butter. Mix.

Allow to marinate for one hour. Preheat oven to 400 F. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper (greased foil would also work). Arrange the shrimp mixture into an even layer. Bake 12 minutes.

Serve over basmati rice.

(Note: you can substitute chunks of chicken breast for shrimp if you like, but allow to cook a little longer.)

Bon appetit!
