Another Monica Bhide recipe! We had the shrimp late last night and I woke up this morning wishing I had some more, they were so delicious! ;) I suggest that you make double the quantity and keep them ready to serve!!! We made these for the seafood and protein lovers! Monica Bhide's newest cookbook is Modern Spice: Inspired Indian Flavors for the Contemporary Kitchen (Simon & Schuster, 2009). There is a 2 hr marinating time for which I didn't allow.

Fast and delicious. Just wish it was warm enough to thread the shrimp onto bamboo skewers and cook them on the bbq.

Amazingly good marinade. I can see using this on other things, like salmon, chicken, baby backs. Yummy... thank you, Manami

This was wonderful; light but filling. The longest part was just waiting for the shrimp to marinade. Next time, it'll be perfect for a mid-week meal because it didn't take much time to actually cook since I used the pre-cooked, tails-off shrimp. The true test of how good it was is that there is nothing left to put in the fridge.
