    I have been fortunate to have much ethnic diversity in my workplace and have collected many recipes over the years. This one is simple and came from a gentleman whose grandfather was a chef at a large hotel in India. It was more of an appetizer but I use it for dinner.

    -Raw shrimp, blot with paper towels to remove excess moisture
    - finely diced hot pepper (I use jalapeño), can control how hot the dish is by removing seeds
    - LIBERAL amounts of turmeric
    - ghee for sautéing

    Sprinkle turmeric on shrimp and let sit for at least 30 minutes. Sauté finely diced pepper in ghee until softened and the add the shrimp to pan. The shrimp doesn't take long to cook.

    I usually season the shrimp in the morning, so when I get home it's a very quick meal.

    Thanks for sharing! I don't cook with turmeric enough - so thank you for the inspiration. :)

    Thanks ... sounds good. But now it's BACK to the store because I forgot the turmeric the last 2 times I was there.

    I do this frequently....and I cook the shrimp very hot for just a couple of minutes so the turmeric gets a little crusty on the outside...mmmmmm.

    Lucky me, Safeway had a sale on spices so I picked up TWO bottles of turmeric and got my onion powder for free. Now I need to thaw some shrimp. can't wait to try this.

    I have been doing this for ages too. I put tumeric on everything! I often toss some toasted coconut thru at the last minute.

    This was good thank you! I switched up the ghee for olive oil too maximize DHA, a side of mackeral aburi raw in the middle and a liiltle cabbage to soak up the golden goodness left over.
