Goan Prawns Fry

Today I am bringing you an exotic spicy Goan Prawn Fry. This recipe is very simple, if you have fresh shrimp handy, you can make this in a jiffy. I have taken this to a potluck party and all the ladies are envy and are after me for this recipe. :-) Here is the recipe for you, Njoy!

Adapted from: Flavors of Mumbai

Prawns / Tiger Shrimp - 20
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Lime Juice - 1 Tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Oil - 3 Tbsp
Cilantro  - for Garnish

Preparatory Steps:
  • Take out tails and any extra viens out of shrimp. Wash and drain shrimp. 
  • Take a small medium bowl, add lime juice, add turmeric powder, red chili powder and salt. Mix it to make like marinade.
  • Rub this marinade on all over the shrimp and keep it aside for 30 min with closed lid, so that shrimp gets marinated well.
  1. Heat 3 Tbsp oil in a shallow non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot add marinated shrimp and fry for 7 to 10 min until shrimp gets cooked and wilted. 
  2. Switch off the stove and take shrimp to wide plate and tap with kitchen towels to remove excessive oil. 
  3. Transfer to serving bowl and garnish with cilantro and server as it is or along with white rice. 
Tempting to try, isn't it!


  • I have used frozen shrimp for this recipe. I have thawed shrimp for 1 hour before starting prep for this recipe.
  • I usually buy peeled, tail-off, semi cooked, frozen shrimp in bulk from Costco. This comes in handy when I have to make quick shrimp recipe. 

Will be back with another simple and exotic sea food dish,
Happy Cooking until then!
