Tandoori Shrimp over Jasmine Rice
August 26th, 2014
Kariim tried a new spin on our shrimp using a traditional Indian spice- Tandoori. It turned out pretty good! Paired with jasmine rice & I helped by adding the grilled zucchini. Simple, Satisfying, & Protein Packed!
NOTE: Quick Meal!! We made it home from work at 8:12pm tonight….. We were eating by 8:50pm. The rice was already prepped.
This recipe was just enough for 2 servings. If cooking for more than 2 people, please adjust.
Left-overs make great MEAL PREP for the next day:) so if you make too much, it’s okay. Refrigerate & use as meal prep for lunch or another dinner.

- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 scallion

This was labeled India Malaysia Red Tandoori. The taste and aroma: Mild, a little spicy and unique. Love the smell:)
