Because my husband loves shrimp, I’ve tested a variety of shrimp dishes in my kitchen, and this mustard shrimp is among my favorites. The combination of wholegrain mustard with garlic and cayenne pepper is mouthwatering. I personally like this one over the garlic shrimp I cook. I hope you will like it.
Tips: (1) Deveining process can be a bit messy for those trying it the first time. You can purchase peeled and deveined ones to save your trouble. (2) Coriander can substituted with parsley.
Recipe: Mustard Shrimp
- 600g shrimps, peeled and deveined
- 4 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tsp of garlic granules
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
- ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- A handful of fresh coriander
- Salt and pepper (as needed)
- (Skip this step for already prepared shrimps) Peel and devein the shrimp and add into a cooking bowl.
- Cut coriander into bite size, and add into the bowl. Add rest of the ingredients except salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
- Chill in the refrigerator for about 30-40 minutes. (I usually marinate and chill about 30 minutes before dinner time and cook right before dinner starts)
- In a frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon cooking oil over medium fire and add the marinated shrimps. Cook both sides of the shrimp. It doesn’t take too long to cook shrimp, i.e. less than 5 minutes. Then season with salt and pepper when shrimps are almost ready.
- Transfer to a serving plate. Serve with rice or bread and enjoy your mouthwatering mustard shrimps!
