Pan-Seared Shrimp

Pan-Seared Shrimp is such an easy dish to make and so appetizing. I love the rich color that the Turmeric and the Tandoori Masala bring to the shrimp. Pan-Seared Shrimp are great as snacks or appetizers…my kids love them as a after school snack. Shrimp, as we all know, are an excellent source of calcium and protein.


Shrimp – 1/2 lb (approx 20 pcs)

Salt – 1/4 tsp, or to taste

Turmeric – 1/2 tsp

Red Chili Powder – 1/2 tsp or to taste

Tandoori Masala – 2 tsp

Lemon Juice – 2 tbsp


  1. Wash and de-vein the shrimp, keeping the tail on or off.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients with the shrimp and let it marinate for minimum 1/2 hour.
  3. Heat a skillet on high heat and add about 1/2 tsp of oil. Allow Oil to heat.
  4. Add the shrimp, cover and let them cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove cover and flip the shrimp over.  Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
