Think butter chicken flavours, but shrimp. Use ghee for the richness if you can. They key to success is getting the pan ripping hot to cook the shrimp quickly.

Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 2


40g ghee (or butter)
1 yellow onion – diced
2 cloves garlic – finely chopped
5g salt
3g fresh grated ginger
3g chili powder
0.5g ground gloves
0.5g ground cinnamon
0.5g garam masala
0.5g ground cardamom
450g large shrimp – peeled
15g cilantro (about half a bunch) – finely chopped

Place a large frying pan on medium heat and add the ghee.

When the ghee is hot, add the onion, stirring occasionally until translucent (about five minutes).

Stir in all remaining ingredients except shrimp and cilantro. Cook for one minute.

Turn heat to high.

Add the shrimp, stirring often until cooked through (58C internal temperature if you have a thermometer sharp enough and the shrimp are large enough to test).

Remove from heat and stir in most of the cilantro, reserving some for garnish.

Serve immediately.
