1/2 Photos of Moroccan Sizzling Shrimp
Muffin Goddess's Note:
Great shrimp appetizer. You could probably stretch this into a meal with some couscous and veggies, too. Untried by me, posted for ZWT. Adapted from "Around the World in 450 Recipes".
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat the olive oil and butter in a large frying pan. When the butter begins to sizzle, add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
- 2Add the spices (cumin, ginger, paprika and cayenne pepper) to the pan. Cook, stirring, for a few seconds.
- 3Add the shrimp. Cook shrimp for 2-3 minutes over high heat, stirring to avoid burning the spices. As soon as all the shrimp have turned pink, they're done. Avoid cooking for much longer past this point, because shrimp very easily become overcooked.
- 4Transfer shrimp to warmed serving dishes. Pour the spicy butter mixture over each serving. Garnish with lemon wedges and some chopped cilantro.
- 5Serve immediately.
