Recipe: Mustard Shrimp

mustard recipes

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

Serving: 3


  • 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)

Cooking instructions

  1. (Skip this step for already prepared shrimps) Peel and devein the shrimp and add into a cooking bowl.
  2. Cut coriander into bite size, and add into the bowl. Add rest of the ingredients except salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
  3. 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)
  4. 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.
  5. Transfer to a serving plate. Serve with rice or bread and enjoy your mouthwatering mustard shrimps!
