"I'm going to break one of the rules of the trade here. Im going to tell you some of the secrets of improvisation. Just remember it's always a good idea to follow the directions exactly the first time you try a recipe. But from then on, you're on your own." -James Beard
The key to this dish is a very hot pan but not too hot. The marinated onions and shrimp will come out of the refrigerator cold and when they are added to the pan will cool the skillet and the oil. That's an advantage because it gives you time to get the shrimp arranged so that they cook evenly.
After about 6 minutes the pan has reheated to the point where the shrimp are about half way cooked and they are slightly crisp on the first side. As they are turned the pan heats more and the second side cooks faster. This is just long enough to wilt the onions.
Shake the pan gently to keep the sauce well blended and so it heats through.
Servings: 4 | Serving size: 4 ounces shrimp with sauce
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes (does not include marinating time)
This recipe can easily be multiplied and makes great leftovers - try the leftover shrimp on sandwiches! Note that active cooking time does not include marinating time. Mix the shrimp in the marinade the night before or at least the morning that you plan to make this. Serve over Brown Rice.
Place the ginger, lemon juice, yogurt, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cayenne, garam masala, cloves, salt, pepper and tomato paste in a bowl.
Add the shrimp and onions and toss until well coated.
Let the shrimp marinate for at least 8 hours in the refrigerator.
When ready to cook place a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the olive oil
When the oil is hot add the onions to the pan.
Cook for 8 minutes. Stir frequently and adjust the heat so the onions do not brown.
Add the shrimp and increase the heat to medium high.
Cook for about 6 minutes. Shake the pan slightly every couple minutes.
Turn the shrimp over and cook on the other side for to another 4 minutes until the shrimp is pink and just cooked through. Shake the pan every couple of minutes.
Serve over brown rice.
