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

Can you please tell how long should the shrimp be broiled to get the perfect consistency(not rubbery)
When you say broiled, do you mean in the oven? In the pan, shrimp cooks within 3-5 minutes.
All your recipes are good, I have become v.famous as best cook in my family and friends.
thank you girls
Was wondering at what temperature can I grill these shrimp in the oven?
