Shrimp and Roasted Pepper Tandoori

Shrimp is one of my favourite freezer standbys when we just fancy something warming but easy! This uses Ajvar to give the colour and roasted red pepper kick! Ajvar is a roasted red pepper meze whic I found in the Tower Supermarket in Sliema so I know it is available in Malta. It is lovely and you should give it a go.

  • To make the dish, prepare some steamed basmati rice.
  • While the rice is cooking,
  • fry a chopped clove of garlic and a sliced onion in a little olive oil and a knob of butter, along with a teaspoon of fennel seeds, a tablespoon of tandoori spice and a pinch of chilli flakes.
  • When the onions are cooked through, add about 8 giant shrimps, sliced lengthways, to the onion mix and cook for a minute.
  • Add three heaped tablespoons of Ajvar to the shrimps and two heaped tablespoons of plain natural yoghurt and stir well. Cook for about 5 minutes and taste. Adjust the seasoning as needed.

Serve with some chopped spring onion greens, red jalapeño and salted almonds sprinkled on top.

Just lovely. Serves 2
